Girl Recognition

An important part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is recognizing girls- through awards and scholarship opportunities! Check below for scholarship opportunities as well as opportunities to nominate Girl Scouts in Orange County for the amazing things they do!


Join the Go-Getter Patrol: Girl Scouts are often asked to take the lead through their participation in special opportunities. Whether they inspire audiences by giving a speech, answer questions on a panel, present the flag, or sing Girl Scout songs, these activities help girls connect with their community!

To join the Go-Getter Patrol, simply complete this form for a girl, or the whole troop, and you will be added to a list of Go-Getter Girl Scouts!

Go-Getter Patrol Form

Girl Scouts of all ages are welcome to apply. When an opportunity arises that matches your indicated interests, our team will be in touch!

THANK YOU to all those that attended the 2017 Girl Scouts Celebrate! Recognition Event held Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the Disneland Hotel.
