A successful collaboration between eight Dallas history museums and the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas has resulted in the “History Museums Explorers Patch.” The patch, designed in the shape of a flag pole, is unique to Dallas and underscores (as does the previous story) how our move from the basement of the JCC to the heart of downtown Dallas has changed the way that we are perceived and the way that we interact with the community. The History Museums Explorers Patch is a progressive patch designed to help girls discover about history museums and their influences and impacts on society. It adheres to the Girl Scout’s national organization’s values. Participants earn the patch by visiting each museum, answering questions, and fulfilling other educational tasks. Flags of each Museum can be added until they all eight are collected.
The Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance Girl Scout Patch is to be part of the History Museum Explorer Patch series. This patch may be earned by Girl Scouts in grades 6 through 12, and from any Girl Scout council. Once the requirements have been met, patches may be purchased at the council shop or through the council’s web site shop at gsnetx.org. The website will also provide more specific information to help earn each patch.
Questions about the patch should be directed to the council’s Resource and Referral Manager, 972-349-2436 or 1-800-442-2260, ext. 136, or email email@example.com. A complete information packet on the patch may be downloaded here.
