Frontier Girls fantasy badge

Frontier Girls fantasy badge

 By Tabitha Simicsak (Butterfly) Troop #101

This spring I decided to write my first badge. Starting in my teen years I have begun to like fantasy. One day I had my best friend over and she said it would be cool if there was a fantasy badge. I thought no more about it, until one night a couple weeks later I was in bed trying to go to sleep. I started to think of requirements I could do, from there I just started writing. I think I should have researched it a little better, because I didn’t learn much. I just used what I know of fantasy. My family, my troop leader, Mrs. Cordy, my pastor’s wife and daughter were a big help. I sent a draft of the badge to Mrs. Cordy and she said that, “I love the idea but it needs some work”. Then she gave me some tips on writing badges. I worked on it some more and sent a second draft to Mrs. Cordy. In the end she still made a few adjustments. I don’t know if I will write any more badges, but if I do write more badges, I would like to write the Radio Theater Badge and the Podcast badge. I encourage girls of all ages to write badges. It is hard work and it can be fun. Just remember to research it thoroughly and keep in mind the basic areas that need to be covered.
