Paint Your World Purple Event (April 1 to May 13)

Kristen BellIf you’ve ever asked how tall the world’s tallest rainbow is, laughed until your sides hurt, or helped a friend speak up for themselves, guess what? You’re a Purple Person! It sounds like you’re a Girl Scout, too. Girl Scouts and Purple People love learning about things like space dolphins, laughing at silly jokes with Grandma, and making sure the world is full of playgrounds.

Paint your world purple and join us for a virtual event on Thursday, May 19 with actor, producer, parent, and Girl Scout alum Kristen Bell, co-author of #1 New York Times bestseller The World Needs More Purple People, as she chats about what it means to be a Purple Person and completes fun activities to show off those Purple People skills.

This virtual event will air at two times on Thursday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m. ET and 6:30 p.m. PT. Join early at 6 p.m. ET/PT for a special pre-show featuring Girl Scouts from across the country.

This members-only event is open to Girl Scouts who join or renew their membership from April 1 through May 13. New members and returning members can purchase their membership and sign up for this exclusive event at the same time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who can use online registration?

Guardians, adult members, and troop leaders can use online registration to complete membership and activities registrations.  All account users must be 18 years of age or older. 

When registering, will I pick a troop for my Girl Scout?

During the registration process, parents can search by zip code to find a troop that fits their girl’s grade, area of town, and/or schedule.

There are two types of troops that may be available:
• Existing troops with space available for new members.
• New troops, which are labeled as “Co Leader Needed".

Co Leader Needed troops are in the process of getting started and have Troop Co-Leader positions that need to be filled before the troop can start meeting.

Please note: not all troops have opted to make their meeting days/times viewable. 

Are scholarships available?

Girl Scouts – Dakota Horizons offers scholarships to members who would otherwise be unable to participate in our program due to financial hardship.  Scholarship allocations are subject to availability within the council’s current operating budget. 

Scholarship funds are available for membership dues, girl event fees, and select retail items.  To learn more about each scholarship visit the Scholarship and Aid page.
