|Some of our Cookie Entrepreneur Officers (CEO's) celebrating their success at Secret Island in May.|
In February and March, girls from Waianae to Waimanalo set up shop at local grocery stores selling cookies with flare as part of the "Bling My Booth" competition. Our local Girl Scouts not only designed their own science experiment to fit into a twinkie-sized MicroLab, they also sent that MicroLab to the International Space Station where they discovered it just might be possible to grow our own food in space. In April we celebrated the achievement of 15 girls who joined an elite group of women across the globe who have received their Gold Award.

In October we kicked off the new Girl Scout year with a word from the First Lady and her sister-in-law, local Girl Scout volunteer, Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng. We're still awaiting the results of our membership competition, and the numbers keep going up! STEM took the stage in November as we honored Dr. Elizabeth Ignacio, Sheryl Seaman and Jan Sullivan at our 2013 Woman of Distinction Dinner. Now as we approach the end of the year, we begin to come full circle as girls have already started their cookie pre-sales!
