When Girl Scouts gather at the 53rd national convention this month in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah, great things are going to happen! And thanks to Ambassador Girl Scout Brittany McCartney from Meadville, you don't have to board a plane or drive for days to stay up-to-date on the all the awesomeness!

Brittany will be updating her sister Girl Scouts on convention happenings, sessions, and stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the GSWPA blog!
