The Girl Scout Motto and Slogan

The Girl Scout Motto: "Be prepared."
The motto reminds girls to be prepared to help others in need in their community and around the world.

The Girl Scout Slogan: "Do a good turn daily."
In the early days of Scouting, girls tied a knot in their neckerchiefs. They could not untie the knot until a good deed was accomplished. Today, the slogan is a reminder of the many ways girls can contribute to the lives of others.

The Girl Scout Sign

Used when reciting the Girl Scout Promise, the Girl Scout Sign or salute is shown by raising the middle three fingers of your right hand while holding down the little finger with your thumb.

The Girl Scout Law and Promise

The Girl Scout Promise and Law are shared by every member of Girl Scouting. The Girl Scout Promise is the way Girl Scouts agree to act every day toward one another and other people, and the Law outlines a way to act towards one another and the world.

The Girl Scout Promise
On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
be responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
