U.S. Senate Passes Resolution Celebrating Girl Scouts' 100th Anniversary

On Monday, March 12th, as Girl Scouts turned 100, the US Senate passed Senate Resolution 310 (S.RES.310)! The resolution designated 2012 as the Year of the Girl and congratulated Girl Scouts of the USA on its 100th anniversary!

In the days surrounding the anniversary, members also gave statements on the Senate floor recognizing the Girl Scouts as an American institution and incubator for women's leadership. Senator Saxby Chambliss of Georgia remarked that the Girl Scouts "have truly been a voice for all girls" and Senator Johnny Isakson, also from Georgia, called Girl Scouts an "organization of leadership" and went on to read the Girl Scout promise during his statement. Watch statements from both Senators by clicking on their names above.

As we began the next 100 years of Girl Scouting, we renew our commitment to support girls' leadership and invite you to join us! Go to ToGetHerThere.org and sign the pledge to be a leader who inspires girls.
