Have you Earned a P.R.A.Y. Award?
Do you have a Girl Scout who has recently earned a P.R.A.Y. Award? If so, we would love for you to submit a photo, along with a brief write-up about what she learned while achieving this award. Submissions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The P.R.A.Y. Awards, along with the My Promise, My Faith program, encourages girls to grow in their religious beliefs and strengthen the connection between the Girl Scout Law and their faith. While Girl Scouts is a secular organization, Girl Scouts of the USA has always encouraged girls to take spiritual journeys via their faiths’ religious recognitions.
You can learn more about the P.R.A.Y Awards on our website and on their Facebook page.
