Are you an artist? Are you looking for a personalized way to say thank you to your troop leaderand all troop leaders accross Northern Minnesota and Northwest Wisconsin?
Girl Scout Leader’s Day is on April 22 and Girl Scouts are showing appreciation to the adult volunteers by participating in the Leader Day Thank You Card Contest.

Any girl member of Lakes and Pines' is eligible to participate.  Here’s how it works:
1. Create a 3.5"x8" card representing Girl Scouts.

2. Write/draw some sign of your appreciation to Girl Scout volunteers on the front and leave the inside blank. Use as many colors as you like but no glitter, stamping, or computer generation. 

3. Include a description explaining why you chose your design, your name, address, troop number, and program level on the back of the card.

We are sorry, no cards can be returned. 

4. Mail your card and description to the Duluth office. 

       424 W Superior St Ordean Building Ste G3

       Duluth, MN 55802-1584

Entries must be received by March 6.
 
 

Staff will vote on their favorite card and that card will be sent out to all the troop leaders across the council to say thanks for helping build girls of Courage, Confidence, and Character!

The Society of Women Engineers
(SWE) will be hosting the 25th Annual Horizons Conference on March 21 at St.
Cloud State University. This conference is an outreach event for junior high
to high school age girls
, with the aim to motivate their interest in
science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). It is a one-day event
that includes hands-on workshops and team projects. We are asking your support
in spreading the word about Horizons, which has always been a wonderfully fun
day for the girls. Women can do very well in engineering and science, but many
girls may not know or believe this. SWE would like to change
that!    

Workshops this year include
competing with a robot to learn about the magic of robotics, using the
scientific method to experiment with light and lasers, and learning the
basics of video game design and creation through cooperation and computer
programming.

Registration is open! For more information click the link below.
