The Girls Scouts is a non-political educational program for school-aged girls. They are taught STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, and math), entrepreneurship, leadership, outdoors and life skills through exciting, hands-on adventures.
The Girl Scouts were founded in 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, USA. Today, Girl Scout troops operate all over the world with more than 3 million members.

Girl Scouts are well-known for their fundraising activity of selling Girl Scout Cookies, often door-to-door just like a postman. Renditions of the Girl Scouts, often given a different name, are often seen in cartoons, television series, and movies.
You can draw a cute Girl Scout cartoon for your next fundraiser or troop meeting. You'll need only a pencil, pen, or marker and something to color with.

Color Your Girl Scout Drawing
Color your cartoon Girl Scout. What color should her uniform be? "Girl Scouts wear uniforms consisting of a white shirt and khaki bottom under the appropriate uniform item for their level: a blue tunic or vest for Daisies (kindergarten and grade 1), a brown sash or vest for Brownies (grades 2-3), a green vest or sash for Juniors (grades 4-5) and a tan sash or vest for the older girl levels of Cadettes (grades 6-8), Seniors (grades 9-10) and Ambassadors grades (11-12)."
