Girl Guide Badges

There are  many different Girl Guide badges that can be earned as part of the Girl Recognition System.  Some allow for the selection of preferred clauses and others require a certain skill level.  Some can be completed in the unit, and others as personal challenges.

Guides Victoria stipulate the correct placement of badges on the sash (pdf download).
