Girl Scouts – It’s Your Chance to Create an Original Song for “I Want to Rock the Mall” Contest


Hey Girl Scouts, it’s time to warm up your voices, tune your guitars and start writing lyrics to your own original song! Why? Because this could be your chance to Rock the Mall!

I Want to Rock the Mall is a YouTube contest especially for Girl Scouts sponsored by K12 Inc., America’s leader in online learning for students in grades kindergarten through 12.

Write an original song expressing what it’s like to be a Girl Scout, record it on video and upload it to youtube.com/gsrockthemall. I Want to Rock the Mall kicks-off November 10,  2011. All entries must be posted on YouTube by April 20, 2012.

The Girl Scout contest winner will dazzle the stage with a live performance in front of hundreds of thousands at Girl Scouts Rock the Mall: 100th Anniversary Sing-Along, in Washington, DC on June 9, 2012. Plus, the winner will be introduced and share a stage with “American Idol” finalist and Girl Scout alumna Thia Megia. To enter, you must be a registered Girl Scout in grades K through 12. I Want to Rock the Mall is part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the Girl Scout movement. The top 10 entries will receive recognition at the event and a Girl Scouts Rock the Mall T-shirt.

“I know that girls are doing it all these days, so I can’t wait to see the videos, hear the creative songs and join our talented winner at Girl Scouts Rock the Mall. It’s going to be truly inspiring,” said Thia Megia, singer, musician and finalist on the hit FOX series “American Idol,”. Thia is the official Ambassador for the I Want to Rock the Mall YouTube contest. While participating in the “American Idol” live tour across the country, Megia balances her performing career and school work as student at California Virtual Academies powered by K12.
