'The More You Know' Campaign Features Girl Scouts of the USA

Girl Scouts of the USA is being featured during the 2006-'07 season of NBC's award-winning public service campaign, "The More You Know (TMYK)." With an overall theme of "Keeping Youth, Families and Communities in the Know," NBC selected self-esteem as one of its focus issues. GSUSA's 800 number - 1 800 GSUSA 4 U - is being displayed during six different spots and running in rotation with the other TMYK spots for the next year.

As part of its promotional efforts, NBC teamed up with CosmoGirl to run a contest that offered teens across the country an opportunity to write their own self-esteem message. The winner was former Girl Scout Angelique Jordan, 18, of Hephzibah, Ga. Mariska Hargitay, star of NBC's Law & Order SVU, reads the contest-winning script. In addition to Mariska, other NBC stars who will be addressing self-esteem throughout the coming year are Parminder Nagra of "ER," James Lesure of "Las Vegas," Molly Sims of "Las Vegas," and Donald Faison of "Scrubs."

Girl Scouts of the USA is the world's preeminent organization for girls, with a membership of more than 3.5 million girls and adults. Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. Chartered by GSUSA to provide Girl Scouting locally, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country serving over 63,000 girl members and 18,000 adults in 25 southeast Texas counties.
