Thank you for helping "light" the way! GSCNC's Light Bulb Challenge is asking for each girl member of GSCNC to change at least one light bulb from incandescent to compact fluorescent (CFL) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) between January 1 and April 1. She can change them at home, a parents' office, school...anywhere that uses light bulbs!

The winning Association will be announced at the GSCNC Annual Meeting on Saturday, April 17, 2010, and will be honored at the GSCNC Eco-Expo on Sunday, April 18, 2010.

Please track your troop's numbers with this survey.

* 1. Are you...

* 2. If you are in a troop, what is your troop number?

* 3. What is your Association and Service Unit?

* 4. Did you know that a compact fluorescent light bulb (CFL) uses 75% less energy than a regular incandescent lightbulb?

* 5. Did you know that only 10% of the electricity used by an incandescent light bulb is used for light, and that the rest escapes as heat?

Did you know... If you replace one incandescent light bulbs with a CFL, you can save $2.00 a year in energy costs and $19 over the lifetime of the CFL. That might not sound like much, but imagine the impact of that multiplied by 65,000 girls in GSCNC

* 6. How many incandescent light bulbs did your troops replace with CFLs or LEDs? Please enter the total number.

* 7. Let us know about your Light Bulb Challenge experience!

Thank you for making the world a better place! This Challenge is part of Girl Scouts Forever Green, a pilot project that is intended to harness the power of the Girl Scout movement by engaging girls in a nationwide, annual, signature Community Action Project, focused on making a significant impact on the environment. Girl Scouts will be at the forefront of environmental sustainability, leading schools and communities in using resources wisely.
