In addition to earning official badges connected to the skills they’re learning, Girl Scouts can also earn Council Patches for participating in special events or activities. Patches are worn on the back of vests or sashes, while badges are worn on the front, and are another great way for Girl Scouts to proudly display their interests and accomplishments.
Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails offers additional patches that are not listed in your program-level handbooks. These patch programs are unique to our Council and were either designed by us, in partnership with a local company/organization, or by a Girl Scout/Troop from Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails.
