One of the requirements for the reporter badge involved writing an ad, so we had our girls in the 1st Fairview Guides split into groups and write three 30-second radio commercials. We had received a couple of sample ads from the station ahead of time so we could discuss what made them catchy, the concept of “target audience,” and the how-to’s of writing a radio spot.
The girls came up with three ads. The best part? Watching the girls’ excitement when they actually hear their ad on the radio!

What’s new with Girl Guides? This weekend is COOKIE DAYS IN CANADA when hundreds of girls and young women will be in 100+ Sears stores nationwide selling Girl Guide Cookies to support their activities, community service projects and international adventures. Each of the units participating in Cookie Days will have a limited supply of hot-off-the-press “Cookie Recipes for Girl Greatness” recipe cards, so plan to get there early if you want a copy. But don’t forget that if they have run out you can still download pdf versions!
Not sure if there will be girls at your local Sears – check out the Cookie Finder Map for all locations and follow us on Twitter – @girlguidecookie and @girlguidesofcan
