Girl Scouts around the world are working together to speak with one voice! Join the movement by following specific style guidelines. To help our overseas volunteers, we have created the overseas brand center where you can access materials that will be useful to your Girl Scout journey.
If you're creating your own flyer, form, or other piece of Girl Scout material, follow this easy checklist to make sure it meets our branding guidelines:
Choosing photos to use for your piece is extremely important. Remember to focus on moments that matter, we want the world to see and feel for themselves all of the amazing things our girls are doing and showcase the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Energy, eye contact, and environment should all be considered when selecting the perfect photograph. When cropping a photograph, the ratio of subject to background should be 80/20. An image with 80 percent girl and 20 percent background will feel immediate and personal. An image with 20 percent girl and 80 percent background will show context and showcase activities.
Once you take a photo of that great Girl Scout experience, then send it to us! We love to see and share what Girl Scouts are doing around the world.
As part of purchasing membership, most signed Girl Scout Membership Forms include permission for photos to be used for Girl Scout purposes—if in doubt, ask the girl’s parent or guardian. If you have a photo that includes non-Girl Scouts, they can fill out an Image Release Consent Form.

Girl Scout badges, patches, awards, and other insignia should be presented, worn, and displayed only after Girl Scouts have completed the requirements outlined in official program materials. Here is how you should place insignia on a Girl Scout uniforms at each grade level.
