LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- April 9, 2014

Neustar, a trusted, neutral provider of real-time information and analytics,
today announced a new partnership with the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana to
inspire young girls to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM). Neustar has joined with leading education technology
company EverFi to bring the My Digital Life digital learning platforms to up
to 4,000 Girl Scouts across Kentucky and Southern Indiana over the next year.

“Sponsoring My Digital Life for the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana gives young
women an opportunity to discover an industry that needs their knowledge and
talent,” said Neustar President and CEO Lisa Hook. “Encouraging more women to
join the STEM field needs to start at a young age, and Neustar is proud to
partner with EverFi and the Girl Scouts to inspire girls for bright and
successful futures.”

Developed by EverFi, the My Digital Life program teaches technology
responsibility in the digital age. While the digital tools of today’s
generation offer great new opportunities, they also present new dangers when
it comes to protecting safety and privacy. My Digital Life program will be
used by the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana, resulting in up to 100 troops and
4,000 Girl Scouts being able to use the program.

“The Girl Scouts are proud to teach critical skills that prepare and inspire
our girls,” said Girl Scouts CEO, Lora Tucker. “This partnership with Neustar
will help send the message that STEM careers can help fulfill girls’ desire to
solve problems and make the world a better place.”

As part of the initiative, My Digital Life will be used in tandem with the
Girl Scouts’ existing STEM related initiatives, such as the Imagine
Engineering workshop and the MEdia Journey program. Cadette Girl Scouts (ages
9-13) will be implementing My Digital Life, while Senior Girl Scouts (Ages
14-16) will utilize the STEM readiness program Radius.

Radius is a highly interactive digital STEM program that uses online gaming
and simulations to teach critical technology and coding skills, ignite
interest in STEM, and expose students to STEM career opportunities.

“The Neustar and Girl Scouts partnership provides an opportunity for girls to
apply concepts they're learning in math and science to real-world situations -
thereby making these subjects more relevant,” said EverFi founder and CEO Tom
Davidson. “Now not only will they be receiving a physical badge on their
vests, but they’ll also earn a digital badge in recognition of their
accomplishments in the program and their success to come.”
