In 2011, Girl Scouts of the USA rolled out a new national program – Journeys. At that same time, a great tool that provides girls the opportunity to create their own badge was released, but since the Girls’ Choice Badge voting process was released in 2013, the use of the tool has been declining.
The Make Your Own Badge site will be shut down on June 30, 2017. Effective on June 1, 2017, the design tool for creating badges will be shut down, so all badge designs must be submitted by this date.
If girls are interested in pursuing a badge that is not currently available, they are encouraged to use another avenue to explore an area of interest, such as a Take Action project or a Destination trip!
