New Girl Scout Badges 2020

Presenting 24 new ways to take leadership to the next level.

Get ready to change the world! 

New Girl Scout badges are here—and we’ve added even more skill-building, friend-making, life-changing experiences to the Girl Scout program!

There’s never been a better time for girls to practice ambitious leadership—and there’s no better place to do it than at Girl Scouts. This year, we’ve added new badges in the following categories:

  • Entrepreneur
  • STEM Career Exploration
  • Automotive Engineering
  • Civics

Combined with our existing unique and proven programs, these new badges put girls on the path to a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.

What will her next amazing adventure look like?
Find out—here’s what’s new:

Entrepreneur badges 
(grades K–12)

Girls develop an entrepreneurial mindset as they engage in age-appropriate exercises that help them create and pitch a product or service that solves a problem. They build their own business plan and think about topics like production, cost, profit, marketing, and competition.

STEM Career Exploration badges 
(grades 2–8)

Girls explore their career interests and connect them to STEM fields—particularly computer science, nature/environmental science, engineering, design, health, and agriculture—that can help them address the pressing issues of our time and change the world.

Automotive Engineering badges 
(grades K–5)

Girls learn about designing, engineering, and manufacturing vehicles, as well as the future of mobility. They design their own vehicles, test prototypes, learn about design thinking, create their own assembly line manufacturing process, and more.

Civics badges 
(grades K–12)

Girls gain an in-depth understanding of how local, state, and federal government works, preparing them to be voters, activists, and, potentially, political leaders. They research laws and how they’re created, voting and the electoral college, the representation of women in government, and more. They also research their local government officials and are encouraged to meet them.

New Girl Scout Journeys and badges

After hearing feedback from parents and leaders, GSUSA has announced a title change to the Cadette badge "Eating for Beauty."

"We agree with the concern expressed that the content of the badge booklet, which addresses nutrition and health, is not accurately reflected in the title. For that reason, we recently brought this concern to a focus group of 75 Cadettes, who reviewed the badge and recommended changing the title to "Eating for You." We are in the process of making this change throughout our program materials. Thank you so much for your patience as we work to have it changed in all locations."


We're looking forward to sharing stories of how local Girl Scouts and volunteers are enjoying the new STEM and Outdoor badges & journeys! Share your Program in Action Story today!
