  • Videos should be two to five minutes long.
  • Videos must use the new GSNCA logo which can be found on our website
  • Videos must include the Council website (www.girlscoutsnca.org)
  • Videos must include the Council 800# (800-734-4541)
  • Videos must be inclusive of the Council as a whole so we may use everywhere – not specifying a specific city, troop or area
  • Girl Scout apparel with the new logo is recommended if using any girls in the photo
  • If wearing a sash or vest, the North-Central Alabama Council ID patch must be on the uniform.
  • Video should be turned in as a .wmv file or as an .mpeg file

Please remember that media/logo policies still apply during our 100th anniversary events!
