Milk and cookies make a perfect pairing. For this year’s Got Milk? photo contest, over 300 entries from the eight Girl Scout councils in California were received. From the Central California South Council, 24 girls entered the Got Milk? Photo Contest. The 24 girls from the Central California South Council will be contacted to receive their Got Milk? Patch. There were three local finalists in each of the Councils who each received a $350 camp scholarship.
Three Girl Scouts from Central California South were among the 24 finalists:
Brooke Branaugh, 5, Clovis
Have Fun. Love Life. Drink Milk. Stay Strong.
Amaya Johnson-Wood, 7, Bakersfield
Milk – it helps me sell Girl Scout cookies!
Jordan Kozuki, 12, Fresno
Galloping or volunteering – Milk helps me to giddyup!
Each Girl Scout submitted a photo with a caption of no more than eight words showcasing the contest prompt: How have Girl Scouts and milk helped them become strong, healthy and confident?
Of these 24 contest finalists, the three grand prize winners were announced. They are:
Eleanor Massey, 7, from Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles
“Real California Milk. Good for Growing Daisies.”
Madison Glock, 6, from Girl Scouts of Northern California
“Climbing higher with milk and Girl Scouts!”
Maria Isabella Burritt, 10, from Girl Scouts San Diego
“Milk Makes My Mind Strong!”
The three grand prize winners were featured in a billboard ad that was unveiled in the girls’ hometowns. Each girl was also awarded a $500 U.S. Savings Bond.
The Girl Scouts Got Milk? Photo Contest, which ran from November 5 to December 17, 2012, was inspired by an iconic print campaign that ran 15 years ago. It featured a 10-year-old Girl Scout who made an impression on Californians with her uniform and an armful of cookie boxes, provoking the question, “GOT MILK?” . The 24 girls from the Central California South Council will be contacted to receive their Got Milk? Patch.
