Building the Girl Scout Pin (Contemporary)



Girl 1:      Our pin is symbolic of our fundamental beliefs. Beliefs, which have not changed since our beginning, although methods change with the times. Beliefs, which help each girl, attain the highest development of which she is capable. This pin is in the shape of a trefoil, meaning        three-fold, and reminds us of the three parts of the Girl Scout Promise. 

All:           “On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country...” 

Girl 2:      We learn to find God in nature, to recognize spiritual values as more important than material                  ones, to seek the beautiful, and to see God in other people. Girl Scouts learn devotion to and seek pride in their country. 

All:           “On my honor, I will try: to help people at all times...” 

Girl 3:      In her consideration for others, a Girl Scout learns to give generous, selfless service. She comes to realize that service to others is an expression of dedication to people. 

All:           “On my honor, I will try: to live by the Girl Scout Law.” 

Girl 4:      The Girl Scout Law is a guide for daily living - stated simply enough for a young girl to apply to                  her own life, profound enough to serve as a measuring post for adults. Think about the people you admire; what makes you admire them? Friendliness, dependability, enthusiasm to serve. These are the qualities that the Girl Scout Law helps us attain. 

Girl 5:      Tying together all parts of the Promise and serving, as its foundation is the fact that we pledge on our honor to try. When we are discouraged, when we have made mistakes, our Promise     reminds us that the best we can do is to keep on trying with a sincere effort. We do more than    believe in our Promise, we try to live by it. Our pin is symbolic of our Promise, and we are           here to explain the parts of our pin tonight.

Girl 6:      Our pin retains the original trefoil. However, Girl Scouting is changing and we want the public to see what we are today, so we present a new symbol, a new face for Girl Scouting. 

All: We are contemporary 

Girl 7:      Girl Scouting offers informal and useable education to help prepare us to live in a world of fast changing needs and resources. The open edges of the trefoil signify our openness and flexibility to change. The three faces face to the right - to the future. 

All:          We are pluralistic

Girl 8:      Girl Scouting is available to all girls. We must commit ourselves to a goal of racial, cultural, and socio-economic diversity and respect and appreciate that diversity.  

All:           We are independent 

Girl 9:      Through new concepts of volunteerism, Girl Scouting is a major organization - locally,                  nationally, and worldwide - will help us grow and develop values and achieve our full

                potential.

Girl 12:    There is a destiny that makes us brothers

                 None goes his way alone

                 All that we send into the lives of others

                 Comes back into our own
