To receive a Community Service Tag or a Growing in Pledge Tag, a Pledge member must complete one item from the tag’s respective column, or a similar activity not listed, at the discretion of the Pledge Mom (or another advisor who is not that Pledge member’s parent).

The Tags do NOT need to be earned in the order presented here.

A Pledge member may earn multiple Community Service and Growing in Pledge Tags from each Rainbow Blossom Lesson.

A NV Pledge Tag is “earned” by a Pledge member upon their initiation. A necklace to hold the Tags will be given to the Pledge member upon their initiation.

A Membership Tag is “earned” every time a Pledge member brings in a new Pledge member.

To earn a NV Rainbow Girls Tag, the Pledge member must have earned at least one Tag from each of the Community Service Tag and Growing in Pledge Tag columns of every Rainbow Blossom Lesson. The Pledge member then answers the following discussion/questions with the Pledge Mom:

-What was the biggest challenge you faced in earning your Merit Tags?
-What was your favorite activity you completed to earn your Merit Tag?
-How did you overcome it?
-Which Rainbow Blossom Lesson means the most to you and why?

The IORG tag is “earned” upon the Pledge member’s Initiation into the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls (IORG).
