We are looking for a creative group of Girl Scouts to work with our Marketing Team. As an expert in all things Girl Scouts, you will help us showcase the amazing things Girl Scouts do in our council!
The GSGCNWI Media Girl Team will be our eyes, ears, and feet on the street as you work as a team and individually to generate and share new ideas and content. Plus, along with earning an awesomely colorful and super-cool patch, you will gather great experience for your future job or college applications.

- Sign a photo release;
- Allow GSGCNWI full rights to use any content you create for marketing purposes. You’ll get to keep everything you create to build your own portfolio, too!
As a member of our Media Girl Team you may:
- Help run social media campaigns and takeovers;
- Create concepts for digital ads and campaigns;
- Write blog posts;
- Gather stories of other Girl Scouts, including conducting interviews;
