Troop Stories


Each and every day, our G.I.R.L.s (Go-getters, Innovators, Risk-takers, Leaders)™ are doing amazing things in their local communities - and we want to see and share it!

We wish we could be everywhere, so that's where we need YOU! You can help us see all the fun and exciting things our troops are doing, and maybe win 1 of 3 Amazon gift certificates we are giving away each month* in the process.

What do you need to do?
Simply post your photo, troop number, location and a 2-3 sentence description of what the troop is doing in the picture in the comments of our monthly Troop Stories post on our official Council Facebook page.
(Not on Facebook? You can still win! Submit your entry here.

Winners are selected at random at the end of each month. We’ll post the winners here, along with the pictures and stories you share.

*No purchase necessary. By submitting your Troop Story, you grant GSNYPENN permission to share your story and potentially use your photos in Council communications collateral. You understand that these materials will become the property of the Council, will not be returned and may be altered or edited. You also certify that you have authority to give consent on behalf of any minors mentioned or pictured. Troops must operate within GSNYPENN’s 26-county council footprint to be eligible to win.
