Girl Scouts Introduce New Badges


In honor of next year’s 100th anniversary, the Girl Scouts have done a major revamp of the badges members can earn for the first time since 1987. Popular badges like cooking, athletics and first aid are staying, but now girls can also earn insignia for locavore awareness, financial literacy, and website design. The Fashion, Fitness and Makeup badge introduced in ’87 has also been tossed for a Science of Style badge that has girls learn about nanotechnology in fabrics and the chemistry of sunscreens.
