Each year, we invite the Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas to participate in our Flag Day Patch Design Contest. The winning contest entry is adopted to create a special commemorative patch for our annual “Flag Day Celebration” event.
The 2019 contest theme was ‘What the American Flag means to me’? For many people the Flag is a symbol of freedom, honor and bravery! We asked the Girl Scouts to show us in their patch design what the Flag means to them.
Our 2019 contest winner was Ashley Persyn! She is a Junior from Girl Scouts Troop #838. Her design was adopted to create our 2019 commemorative patch, which was distributed at our “Flag Day Celebration” on Thursday, June 13. Ashley was given special recognition at our event, including an awards certificate and a cash prize.
