(2017 Girls Advisory Board retreat at Maine Huts and Trails)

Girls Advisory Board (GAB) and Girls Rock!

GAB added seven new members from Bangor to Biddeford and all in between. They’ve already met twice and had an overnight retreat. They are hard at work on creating content for the conferences in the spring. This year, we’re adding a third conference in the Bangor area! Registration to open soon. Save the dates:

  • Girls Rock! Awards: Friday, March 2 (Nominate a girl here)
  • Girls Rock! Southern Maine Conference (Portland): Friday, March 30
  • Girls Rock! Eastern Maine Conference (Orono): Friday, April 6
  • Girls Rock! Central Maine Conference (Waterville): Friday, April 27

Call for Committee Members!

Want to help plan the Girls Rock! Awards or conferences? We’d love to have you! Meetings will start up soon and be every few weeks. When the events get closer (February-ish) they’ll meet every other week. We’re looking for folks who stand with girls, have some time to give, and some connection to the Portland, Waterville or Bangor areas. Meetings can be in person or by video conferencing. Interested or want more information? Email Sarah.

Freaky 5K Update

After several years of running in costumes, Hardy Girls has decided not to host the Freaky 5K this year. Created as a fundraiser, it wasn’t quite raising the funds (although plenty of fun!). However, Colby College will be hosting a 5K on October 28 and encouraging folks to wear costumes. All proceeds will benefit Hardy Girls and we encourage you to attend! Registration is $5 and the race starts at 8am. You even get a T-shirt! 

Girls Rock! Nominations

Calling all people who know incredible girls (this means ALL of you)! We want your nominations for girls who are rocking it in Maine. We’re looking for 9-19 year-olds self-identified girls (includes gender fluid folks) who are leaders in community organizing, entrepreneurship, health advocacy, STEM, athletics, and challenging adversity. Deadline for nominations is December 31. We want to hear from every county! Then join us on March 2, 2018 for the Girls Rock! Awards.

Nominate a girl today!
