. M. Harris created this great evaluation form for the scouts to fill out listing all of the awards, journeys, and badges with descriptions of each. The girls then rate each award according to how much they would like to do it. The ratings can then be combined to rank and prioritize the awards to come up with a troop schedule.

Intermediate Girl Scout Proficiency Badges, 1938-1963 Edit

In 1937, program revisions for three distinct age levels of Girl Scouts began. Intermediate Scouts were girls ages ten to thirteen (later to be fourteen). The revised program for Intermediate Girl Scouts was presented to the membership in the April, May, and June 1938 issues of The Girl Scout Leader. This revised program was considered to be in effect as soon as it was printed, and leaders and girls were urged to start it immediately. Until July 1939, however, both the existing and the revised programs were official.

There were eighty badges for Intermediate Girl Scouts in the revised 1938 program. Each badge had a number of specific requirements, but also allowed a girl to choose from optional activities.
