Herndon Connection: Girl Scouts Serve Community

Getting recognition for your girls

Make sure you have a signed Photo Release Form from every Girl Scout’s parent or guardian before distributing a picture to the media that features their child. There is a box on the bottom right of the Parental Permission form for parents to check that signifies their permission to distribute photographs of their child.

You may distribute the child’s full name if you have parental permission, but for privacy and safety’s sake, consider using only first names or “members of Troop xxx.”
