Celebrate National S’mores Day on Wednesday
National S’mores Day is this Wednesday, August 10, and we have a virtual day of fun planned on our social media pages. Come craft with us, play a STEM game and join in on a photo challenge featuring your very own marshmallow man! 

Our CEO, Jennifer, along with some of our Media Girls will be going live on Facebook at 11 a.m. to show off their marshmallow tower building skills. Follow along with their fun and build your own too!

If you submit a photo of your marshmallow man with the hashtag #gscp2psmoresday and tag us @gscp2p, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 certificate to the Girl Scout Shop! You can find all the materials needed for the photo challenge here.
