What Are Brownie Try-It Patches?

Brownie Try-It patches are the equivalent of Girl Scout badges for older girls in the Girl Scouts. Brownies are second and third-grade girls who can earn Try-It patches for gaining knowledge and experience in specific areas.

As of 2014, Brownies can earn Try-Its with such diverse titles as "Celebrating Community," "Give Back," "Inventor," "Meet My Customers," "My Great Day," "Philanthropist" and "Brownie First Aid," according to Scouts Honor. Individual Girl Scout councils can also design specific Try-Its of their own.

When a Brownie completes all the required tasks to earn a Try-It, she receives a triangular-shaped embroidered badge. She is expected to display the badge on the badge sash or vest, which is part of the Brownie uniform.
