Courage Confidence Character

cid:image001.jpg@01CDEA83.88F18F40Dear Girl Scouts,
Here is an extraordinary opportunity to show your recycling spirit, earn CASH and bring honor to your Council. Your Troop can win $500 plus the value of the cans. Scout leaders can take advantage of free patches, stuffed guys, t-shirts, baseball caps, aluminum bottles and more to stimulate greater aluminum can recycling. The Troop/Council Challenge is open to Boy and Girl Scout Troops and their Councils. Go to to register your unit and find everything you need to help you generate recycling enthusiasm and initiate a successful Roundup. Show your true green spirit and environmental leadership by rallying your troop and
Council to recycle aluminum cans between Jan. 15 and April 30. Cash prizes through 6th place will go to the top per capita aluminum can recycling troops. Troop verified poundage will be added together to recognize the National Recycling Champion and Reserve Champion Councils along with $800 for Scout activities.
Sincerely, Al the Can

It would be great to see Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming on the Great American Can Roundup Scout Council Challenge leader board.  This is your opportunity for your Council and troops to win cash awards, bring honor to your council and show your recycling spirit.  In addition to the value of the aluminum cans, the Can Manufacturers Institute will be giving $2,150 in cash to top recyclers.  Last year a total of 28 troops participated, so your chances of winning are excellent.  Don’t be left out.  Please help us let Girl Scout leaders learn about the Scout Council Challenge and encourage them to register at where they will find everything needed for a success roundup. Let’s rally your troops to recycle between January 15 and April 30, 2013 and make every can count.  Game-on at      Recycle to win.  Go Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming!     Sincerely,   Jenny Day
