Shelton Scouts honored for telling their stories
Olivia and Grace Wong of Shelton were two of the 12 girls from throughout the state chosen as semi-finialsts for the Tell Your Girl Scout Story video challenge.
Frontier and the Girl Scouts of Connecticut partnered for the challenge, encouraging girls to upload short videos to Frontier’s Facebook page that described how Girl Scouts has supported them in the areas of leadership, technology or community.
The semi-finalists received the most public votes on Facebook and were honored during an awards ceremony at Frontier’s East Region Headquarters in New Haven.
Each of the semi-finalists will receive one year of free Frontier services and a $100 Visa gift card. The videos will now move on to the next phase of competition; they will be on display at the upcoming Girl Scouts of Connecticut Fun Fest, where attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite.
Grand prize winner
The grand prize winner, who will be announced at Fun Fest, will receive a $500 Visa gift card, 20 complimentary tickets to the Frontier suite at the Webster Bank Arena for the event of their choice, and dinner for their entire Girl Scout troop, sponsored by the Frontier Area General Manager for their area, at the hometown restaurant of their choice.
“It’s our belief at Girl Scouts of Connecticut that every girl has a chance to do something amazing, and these talented young women have done just that,” said Mary Barneby, CEO, Girl Scouts of Connecticut.
"Our partnership with Frontier on this contest gave our Girl Scouts an opportunity to use technology to tell their personal stories in a new and exciting way," Barneby said.
