1973-1985 Junior Girl Scout Uniform

Junior Girl Scout Uniform. This uniform was made between 1973 and 1985 and was  worn by girls in fourth through sixth grade.

There are 5 pieces that could be mixed and matched: a blouse or green ribbed turtle neck, a jumper, pants and shorts. The jumper and blouse are shown here along with the official red tie, pins, sash and patrol leaders rope. The official hat continued to be a green beret.

Insignia on the front of the sash include Brownie badges earned previously; Wings earned by “flying up” from Brownies to Girl Scouts, Sign of the Arrow and sign of the star earned by completing several requirements, which included 3 interest badges; and interest badges. This sash features the first computer badge. One of the requirements was to find 5 people who use computers!

This uniform is on loan from the Marie Ogdahl collection.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of Girl Scouting, a collection of “Girl Scout Uniforms Through the Years” is on exhibit at the Museum now through March.

      I am sorry, but we cannot appraise items for value. A quick way to check what it would sell for is to look for similar items on e-bay.
