Globetrotters Challenge

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO Friday 16 April!

Even though we can’t be together, it doesn’t mean we can’t keep our love of all things International alive!

While our beloved Timpeall an Domhain competition has been postponed until 2022, in its absence our International Committee has devised the Globetrotters Challenge!

This challenge has been designed for Guides. Guides can complete the activities individually or in small groups (2-5 max). Depending on public health guidelines, this could be done virtually or in-person.

Entries can be submitted by filling out the Globetrotters Challenge submission form and attaching pictures and text. This can then be forwarded to competitions@irishgirlguides.ie with “Globetrotters Challenge” in the subject line by Friday 16 April 2021.

The Globetrotters Challenge works by choosing one country from the following list and completing the activities based on your selected country.

The countries to choose from are:

  1. Germany
  2. Uganda
  3. Hong Kong
  4. Oman
  5. Canada

The tasks are:

  1. To make and model a costume inspired by your chosen country
  2. Make a craft from your chosen country
  3. Make a recipe from your chosen country
  4. Create a poster with some general facts about the country and some information on Guiding in that country.

Best of luck everyone! And, yes, there WILL be prizes!!
