Talk:Religious emblems programs (Girl Scouts of the USA)
|WikiProject Scouting||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
I created this article with information from my knowledge as a Girl Scout, the GSUSA website, the P.R.A.Y. website, and the To Serve God... brochure distributed in Girl Scout council shops and on the P.R.A.Y. website. The table was taken from Religious emblems programs (Boy Scouts of America), since most programs are the same for both boys and girls, and altered the table with changes to reflect the information about the girls' programs that are different from the boys' programs. I have removed the programs from faiths not approved by GSUSA or recognized by P.R.A.Y. as a GSUSA girls' program, and added the UUA program that is not approved by BSA, but is by GSUSA. I have also made changes to the table for programs with different recognitions for girls that I found, but I may have missed some faiths, for which the table still displays the boys' recognitions. Please update the table if you catch what I have missed, or if any programs have changed or been added recently. -- t c s 20:16, 29 July 2008 (UTC)
- Thought the tables looked familiar. A very good start. --—— Gadget850 (Ed) talk - 13:42, 30 July 2008 (UTC)
Several girls in my Troop are earning these awards, so I can get pictures of the actual pins. Would a sparse set of images enhance or detract from this article? E.g., I can provide a Bat Or and a Menorah but not a Lehavah; a Family of God and I Live My Faith but not the Marian Medal (at least for a year or so); it may be quite a while before I find a Bahá'í emblem-wearer.... ➥the Epopt (talk) 20:43, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
- We can probably find the images online. They will be non-free images, so we can't use them in a list. We can only use non-free images where there is significant related content. --—— Gadget850 (Ed) talk - 21:27, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
Does the GSUSA require approval at the National level or can local councils or even troops do approval?
For instance the Wiccan Hart and Crescent award is not listed on the PRAY website yet it is awarded to Girl Scouts and worn on their uniforms. It can also be awarded to Boy Scouts but the BSA doesn't recognize it and prohibits it from being worn on the uniform.--Erp (talk) 05:07, 18 December 2008 (UTC)
