We consider all of our readers “Discovery Girls”—girls who are curious, strong, and enthusiastic about becoming the very best they can be. We also feature several girls in each issue of the magazine who are our Discovery Girls for that issue. In the past, we visited a different state for each issue and held a two-day photo shoot, during which our Discovery Girls from that state helped us put together the issue. In 2013, we started holding an annual Girls Leadership Summit. We invite 36 girls to come to California for a 3-day summit to learn leadership skills, discuss issues of importance to tween girls, attend photo shoots, work with our editors to brainstorm ideas for the magazine—and have tons of fun!
