Once a girl checks the Awards Log in The Girl’s Guide to Girl
Scouting to make sure there’s not already a badge on the topic she
wants to explore, she’ll follow steps outlined in her handbook to
complete the requirements for her very own badge.
In addition to the leadership awards tied to the Journeys and the
National Proficiency badges, girls can show they belong by adding
emblems to the front of their vests or sashes and participation
patches on the back.
