Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas will have the chance to flex their architectural and engineering skills while developing critical thinking, cooperation and team building abilities through the annual Cookie Box Creations design contest. Participating Girl Scouts will partner with local male and female construction, engineering, architecture and technology professionals to create free-standing themed structures using a maximum of 1,000 empty Girl Scout Cookie boxes.
This year’s exhibit theme is “Trailblazing Women” and will depict transformative women who helped shape the world we live in such as, Marie Curie, Amelia Earhart, Aretha Franklin, Katherine Johnson, Rani Lakshmibai, Nancy Lieberman, Rita Moreno, Selena Quintanilla, and Sally Ride.
Partnering companies include: Balfour Beatty Construction, Cisco Systems, Inc., HDR, Inc., HKS, Inc., Jacobs Engineering Group Inc., Kimley Horn and Associates, Inc., P&L Paving, Omniplan, Inc., and Texas Instruments, Inc.
Judging will take place on Monday, March 2, and winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in April at Galleria Dallas. The public can also vote on a People’s Choice Award by scanning a structure’s QR code.
