Rancho Santa Fe resident among GOT MILK? Girl Scouts Photo Contest finalists

RSF resident and Girl Scouts Photo Contest finalist Samantha Kim

The California Milk Processor Board (CMPB), the creator of GOT MILK?, and the Girl Scouts in California announced recently the names of 24 GOT MILK? – Girl Scouts Photo Contest finalists from California.  Among these lucky young ladies will be three grand prize winners who will be featured together on new GOT MILK? -  Girls Scouts commemorative billboards to be unveiled early February in the girls’ hometowns.

RSF resident Samantha Kim, 6, is among the finalists.

“We received over 300 entries from Girl Scouts from all eight councils in California,” says Steve James, executive director of the CMPB.  “It was great to see how this contest sparked creativity among the girls and it reminded Californians that the values of Girl Scouting and milk go hand-in-hand.”

The Girl Scouts Photo Contest, which ran from Nov. 5 to Dec. 17, 2012, was inspired by an iconic print campaign that ran 15 years ago.  It featured an adorable 10-year-old Girl Scout who made an impression on Californians with her iconic uniform and an armful of cookie boxes, provoking the question “GOT MILK?”

This fall’s contest was open to all currently registered Girl Scouts in kindergarten through Grade 12 belonging to one of the eight councils in California: Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, Girl Scouts of Northern California, Girl Scouts of Orange County, Girl Scouts San Diego Council, Girl Scouts Heart of Central California, Girl Scouts of Central California South, Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast and Girl Scouts of San Gorgonio Council.  Girl Scouts had to submit a photo with a caption of no more than eight words showcasing the contest prompt: How have Girl Scouts and milk helped them become strong, healthy and confident?

All 24 contest finalists will each receive a camp scholarship worth $350. The three grand prize Girl Scouts winners to be announced at the end of this month will each receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond and will be featured together on a billboard (or comparable advertising media) in their hometowns throughout the month of February just in time for cookie sale season.
