Involving Girl Scouts in Your Events


The "AVA Participation Patch for Girl Scout Walks" is designed each year in a contest run by a specific AVA club and its partnering Girl Scout council. The AVA Youth Committee awards the contest to clubs that have established plans for long term volkssport programs with their partner Girl Scout council.


The council runs the contest and submits designs from individual Girl Scouts or troop/groups to the club who forwards their top 3 or 4 designs to the AVA Youth Committee. The Girl Scout or troop/group with the winning design is presented with a certificate with the patch made of their design.
