Girl Scout Day at the Newseum

<< This event has passed; back to Scouting Events & Activities in NOVA

Join the Newseum, a museum dedicated to promoting, explaining, and defending free expression and the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly, and petition, for a day just for Scouts on March 2, 2019!

Activities include:

• Show what you know about the Girl Scouts, women’s history, and current events in the Newseum’s popular NewsMania game show.
• Race across a giant game board as you play Front Page Frenzy, a game that uses historical front pages featuring accomplishments of famous women.
• Show off your best singing voice with our popular karaoke “Girl Scouts Sing!”
• Learn how woman suffrage activists used their First Amendment rights to bring attention to their cause in “Votes for Women.”
• Make crafts at the Express Yourself station.
• Bring your camera and capture a selfie with a life-sized cutout of Nellie Bly, a pioneer for women in journalism.
• Pack your imagination and head off on the Nellie Bly Global Scavenger Hunt in the Newseum’s exhibits. Travel through time to learn about the different ways of communicating, news around the world, and the life of journalist Elizabeth Cochrane, aka Nellie Bly.

Tickets are just $11 per person and Scouts under the age of 6 are free. Plus, if you purchase tickets by February 1, 2019, you’ll receive an exclusive commemorative patch!
