The Girl Scouts of the philippines (GSP) offers programs that are meaningful and responsive to their needs and interests. One of these is the Chief Girl Scout Medal Scheme (CGSMS), a special program created in 1975 encouraging Senior and Cadet Girl Scouts (young women aged 15-17) to initiate and implement in their respective barangays a one year community project focusing on health, cultural heritage, livelihood, and ecology. Now on its 43rd year, the Chief Girl Scout Award remains GSP’s most prestigious award. To date, it has awarded a total of 10,766 medalists.
This year, the GSP will honor 850 young women from all over the country, who have successfully undertaken various community development projects under the scheme.
The annual Chief Girl Scout Medal Presentation Ceremony will be held on October 28, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Plenary Hall of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), CCP Complex, Pasay City with former Chief Girl Scout Medalist Yhiza Pena as the guest speaker.
Around 2,700 guests from all over the country, including the awardees, their parents, tropp leaders, GSP officials, and community members, will witness the joyous and memorable event.
In view of this, Senior and Cadet Girls Scouts (high school students) who will be awarded during the ceremony will be excused from their classes. Moreover, chaperones of awardees (troop leaders/ teachers, schools officials) are allowed to attend on official time.
Immediate and wide dissemination of this Memorandum is desired.
