Subheadline

(First released on 8/16/11, Updated 9/8/11) -- Girl Scouts is kicking off their 100th anniversary celebrations by naming 100 Colorado Girl Scouts as the leaders of tomorrow – the Generation Wow! This designation recognizes outstanding girls whose individual achievements in Girl Scouts, their schools and communities set them apart as leaders.

The 100 Girl Scouts who have been named are listed below. Girls who earned this honor exhibit a high level of volunteer achievement and make significant contributions to their community. They demonstrate strong leadership skills through service and learning projects. They exhibit achievement in developing a healthy attitude, both mind and body, and demonstrate exceptional interpersonal skills in teamwork, conflict resolution and goal setting. They embody the mission of Girl Scouting. A committee of outside civic and community leaders from throughout Colorado helped select these recipients.
