Councils Own Hero

Council's Own

Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia offers girls both inside and outside of our council the opportunity to earn Council's Own badges and Historic Georgia patches and pins. The requirements to earn these recognitions can be found below.

Please note: Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia and Girl Scout First Headquarters are reimagining and retiring some of our Council's Own Badges at this time.  This is in part to simply edit the badges for content based on new opportunities or more current curriculum, as well as to fit with the new GSUSA national badge criteria. Some badges may not be available at this time. Find the full list of changes here.
