Girl Scout Ambassador Uniform

Girl Scout Ambassadors wear the Girl Scout Membership Pin, showing they belong to Girl Scouts of the USA, and the World Trefoil Pin, signifying their membership in a worldwide Girl Scout/Girl Guide organization. Ambassadors wear a sash or vest to display official pins and awards. The unifying look includes wearing the sash or vest together with a solid white shirt and khaki pants or a skirt. Ambassadors also have the option to wear a scarf relating their look with the sisterhood of Girl Scouts around the world.

This “uniform” is required when girls participate in ceremonies or officially represent the Girl Scout Movement (such as in a parade or while performing community service).
