Democracy for Daisies
What is democracy and who represents me in government? Explore more about civics and government with the Dole Institute of Politics for a virtual program on the new Democracy badge. Learn how to write a letter to the governor or use your letter writing powers to write to Frances, the governor of Kansas’ cat!
Girls will complete steps 1-3 in the new Democracy for Daisies badge.
Cost Per Person: FREE
- This program will be live on Zoom. You must register for the program to be sent the virtual Zoom meeting information.
- Girls will need a pencil, notebook paper, and colored pencils or crayons.
- Please individually register each of your Girl Scouts (even if you are meeting in person altogether). This will help give an accurate count. If you are a leader who is having the girls watch together on one computer please email Julie Clover afterwards with how many girls were watching - this will also promote accurate counts.
Please be a sister to our Girl Scout partners. Our partners invest staff and financial resources to provide unique Girl Scout programming at no cost to our girls and their families/troops. This is one of those special opportunities. In order for our partners to continue offering low-cost and free programming to Girl Scouts, please notify them as soon as possible if you can no longer attend.
