Where to Place Insignia on a Uniform
A Visual Guide for Awards, Badges, Patches
Girl Scout badges, patches, awards, and other insignia should be presented, worn,
or displayed only after Girl Scouts have completed the requirements outlined in
the appropriate program materials.
The GSUSA National Board updated the Girl Scout uniform policy recently to reflect
the changing needs of our members and transformation of the Girl Scout Leadership
Girl Scouts at each level have one required element (Tunic, Sash or Vest) for the
display of official pins and awards which will be required when girls participate
in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout Movement.
For girls ages 5 to 14, the unifying look includes wearing a choice of a tunic,
vest, sash for displaying official pins and awards, combined with their own solid
white shirts and khaki pants or skirts. Girl Scouts in high school can also wear
a scarf that unites their look with the sisterhood of Girl Scouts around the world.
For adult members the unifying look of the uniform is a Girl Scout official scarf
or tie for men, worn with the official membership pins, combined with their own
navy blue business attire. Girl Scouts at the Daisy and Brownie levels will continue
to have a full uniform ensemble available.
