Visit up to 50 countries that are members of WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts). Experience food, games and activities from all over the world! Bring a roll of nickels to buy souvenirs. All proceeds are donated to the Juliette Low World Friendship Fund which helps girls to travel to international Girl Scout and Girl Guides events. The JLWFF helps to support the four World Centers (come and discover where they are!) and donates to WAGGGS to help spread Girl Guiding to non-member countries.
Want to Sponsor a Country?
Choose from one of the countries listed on the Country Registration Form and create a booth that shares what you learned with everyone. Sell items for a nickel and all proceeds go to JLWFF. The International Fair provides rubber stamps for each troop to use and all Girl Scouts receive a PASSPORT to get “stamped” as they visit each booth. Visitors will vote for the best booth displays and the top 3 will receive prizes.
Senior and Ambassador Troop Fundraiser Opportunity
Up to 6 older girl troops are invited to sponsor a food booth in the front room. Food Booth Applications are approved on a first-come basis after October 1. No two troops may sell the same thing so get those applications mailed early. A waiting list will be formed if necessary. Cost is $20 + a $20 deposit that is refunded at the end of the day when your troops stays to help clean the building. Includes year segment for all girls who attend.

$2 (one roll) of nickels to spend at Country Booths
$5-$10 for lunch/snacks (older girl troops offer a variety of concessions as a fundraiser)
