Guam Girl Scout Sia Duenas of Troop 110 was announced the winner of the Early Bird Patch Design Contest, hosted by USA Girl Scouts Overseas (USAGSO). Over 200 entries were received from Girl Scouts all throughout the world. Sia’s patch design will be produced and given to USAGSO Girl Scouts who register during upcoming membership campaigns.
According to Troop Leaders Amanda Buniag and Marie Racadio, all the girls in their Troop participated in the contest. “The Girl Scouts in our Brownie Troop shared their patch design with each other during a virtual meeting,” said Troop Leaders. “It was wonderful to see all of their artistic talents and creativity shine in their own unique ways. We are honored for Sia’s Guamazing design to win the Early Bird Challenge. We can’t wait to see her patch on Girl Scouts next year.”
“Sia’s design is vibrant, and depicts a beautiful Guam morning. There are over 12,500 USAGSO members worldwide. It’s amazing to think that, with Sia’s patch, there will be a glimpse of Guam on each of their Girl Scout vests. Congratulations to Sia and Troop 110,” says Karina Quito, Executive Director of Guam Girl Scouts.
