GSNYPENNservicemarkHere is the media recap for the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways for April 2013!

A Girl Scout Junior from Oswego is working on her Girl Scout Silver Award and held a soccer clinic for children with disabilities. The Oswego County Today reports.

The Rome Observer reports about Girl Scouts cleaning up local parks for Earth Day. This was part of the project developed by the Girl Leadership Team in conjunction with the Alcoa Foundation.

Girl Scouts from Bath held a “Bring a Friend, Make a Friend” event at the Dormann Library to fulfill their badge requirements for the Diplomat Badge. The Steuben Courier Advocate has the story and a photo.

The Press & Sun Bulletin reports about a local Girl Scout’s Gold Award Project. There is also a video you can watch at the link!

Girl Scouts in the Watertown area had a very successful cookie program in 2013, nearly doubling the amount they sold from 2012. Because of that, the girls will be awarded with a free program at a council camp. The Watertown Daily Times has the full story.

The Girl Scout Research Institute released its most recent study this month about financial literacy and girls. The study is the subject of our most recent column in The Citizen. The study is also a feature story for the Victor Post where local Girl Scouts were interviewed and asked about their thoughts about the study.

That’s the highlights of April’s media. Make sure you listen to our most recent podcast for May about the Young Women of Distinction events and awards. The podcast is on our Youtube channel.
