Marketing Resources

Girl Scouts have so many wow-worthy stories to share! 

EVERYONE in Girl Scouting has a role in protecting our name, our image, and our brand. 

Your actions, words, social media posts, recruitments, and events represent you, your service unit, your council, and the larger Girl Scout movement. Whether you're talking about Girl Scouts with your friends, wearing a GS shirt in public, or sharing photos of your troop on Facebook, you are all walking talking representations of what it means to be a Girl Scout and what this organization is and does. 

Here are some resources to help you connect and share how Girl Scouts are taking action in Greater South Texas. 

2022 - 2023 Flyers and Resources Coming Soon!

Image Safety Guidelines

In order to keep girls safe, it's important to know whether or not you have permission to use images of our Girl Scouts! Registered Girl Scouts and girls who have registered for staff-led Girl Scout events give permission to use images taken at Girl Scout activities to promote Girl Scouting. However, always be sure to check with troop leaders and parents in attendance. 

If you are inviting a news reporter or videographer to your meeting/event, please make sure that all those who are in attendance are aware of their presence. 

When non-Girl Scouts are invited to a private event, please be sure to get guardian consent before taking pictures of minors.

Logos and Photography

How do I use the Council Logo / GS Logo?
  • The logo should appear on every flyer, letter, or product that communicates about Girl Scouts. 
  • When centering the council servicemark, the full width should be centered. 
  • Never change the configuration of the Girl Scout or council logo. 
  • Council acronyms are shorthand for the full council name. These should only be used extremely sparingly and only in cases where the full council servicemark does not fit. 
  • Never use acronyms to speak to any audience that does not consist of current members of Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas.
