Celebrate Girl Scouts Building A Better World in the Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Girl Scouts on Parade!

Celebrate Girl Scouts Building A Better World in the 92nd Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

This year, Girl Scouts’ “Building a Better World” float will return to the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade®, where we’ll celebrate girls building a better world through STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math).
At a time when women account for half of the college-educated workforce but fill just 29 percent of science and engineering occupations, Girl Scouts is cultivating girls’ interest in STEM from an early age and helping them build valuable STEM skills so they can take the lead and positively impact our world.

Looking for fun ways to let your girl’s G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ spirit shine through involvement in STEM and the parade? Check out our downloadable activity sheets, featuring parade bingo, creative coding puzzles, and more.

Tegan Marie, 15-year-old rising pop-country star and Girl Scout, will inspire viewers natonwide as one of the youngest country performers in the Parade’s history and the youngest performer ever on the Girl Scout float.

“I’m super excited to share my voice on the Girl Scout float this Thanksgiving!” said Tegan Marie. “As a Girl Scout, it’s a dream come true to represent more than a million girls who are doing awesome things to change the world. I hope other girls are inspired by my music and the way I’ve helped my community. I think all girls should be Girl Scouts so they can join me in making the world a better place.”
