Social Media and Your Gold Award

Girl Scouts Spirit of Nebraska supports the efforts of girls pursuing their Gold Award to secure funding via online avenues, such as Facebook and reputable crowd sourcing sites. To that end, the council will co-sponsor Facebook events for girls working on their Gold Award. The council also will promote a Gold Award applicants’ GoFundMe page, or similar effort, with one post on the council’s primary social media platforms. To arrange a social media promotion, please contact Shannon.
