Each year, Girl Scouts from across Kansas submit their projects for ribbons at the Kansas State Fair. All of these will be on display the duration of the State Fair at the Girl Scout In 2012, Girl Scouts also met at the Kansas State Fair to celebrate Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary.
At the Girl Scout booth, fair-goers received a patch for participating in a scavenger hunt, visited with Older Girl Scouts who had traveled to Japan, learned about our STEM initiatives as the Robotroop shared its vision and had their pictures taken with the Girl Scout photo cutout. Many new girls registered to be Girl Scouts and several of alumnae joined the Alumni & Friends.
Girl Scouts were seen volunteering at entrance gates, greeting the public at our cabin and at the 100th Birthday Party on Sunday, September 16, 2012.
