Girl Scouts Celebrate Women's Leadership At Capitol Hill Event With U.S. Treasurer, Congressional Members And Other Leaders

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Girl Scouts of the USA CEO Anna Maria Chavez and Seventeen of Girl Scouts Gold Award recipients from around the country will join Treasurer of the United States Rosie Rios and more than 100 other leaders on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 28 to celebrate women's leadership and the second century of Girl Scouting.

The leadership breakfast will bring together outstanding women and men from the public and private sectors and will include members of Girl Scouts Honorary Troop Capitol Hill, made up of all the female Members of Congress. A key feature of the event will be recognizing Girl Scout Gold Award recipients and five of the 2013 Young Women of Distinction – girls that have earned the Gold Award and were selected by an external committee with representatives from leading nonprofit organizations, Girl Scout partners and funders. Both recognitions require significant planning and project management within their communities, and are awarded at the Girl Scout Senior and Girl Scout Ambassador levels.

"Girl Scouting is all about creating girls of courage and confidence who will make our world a better place.  For one day, we will bridge the gap between generations, bringing together the leaders of tomorrow – the amazing young women who have earned the Girl Scout's highest honor, the Gold Award,– with the leaders of today," said Anna Maria Chavez, CEO of Girl Scouts of the USA. "The energy in the room will be palpable, as these incredible young women interface directly with some of the most successful and influential women from both the private and public sectors.  It will be a true meeting of the minds, one that will speak to the power of Girl Scouting to change lives and, in the process, shape our future."

Girl Scouts of the USA completes its centennial year on March 12, 2013, and the breakfast also will serve as a launch celebration of the 2013 Girl Scouts of the USA Centennial Silver Dollar. Beginning on February 28 at noon ET, the coin will be available through the United States Mint and in select Girl Scout council shops nationwide. For information on the coin, visit www.girlscouts.org/coin or www.usmint.gov, or dial 1-800- USA-MINT (872-6468).
