National Young Women of Distinction 2015

The National Young Woman of Distinction (NYWOD) is the highest honor in Girl Scouting.  It is given yearly to ten Girl Scout Gold Award recipients whose final projects demonstrated extraordinary leadership, had a measurable and sustainable impact, and addressed a local challenge that related to a national and/or global issue.  Meet the 2014 National Young Women of Distinction.

Each National Young Woman of Distinction will receive a $5,000 academic scholarship made possible by the Kappa Delta Foundation, a $10,000 Distinction scholarship award from GSUSA, training in public speaking, and recognition at an award ceremony held in October in New York City.

Girl Scout councils may select up to three nominees; if a council decides to nominate a girl, she must be registered with Go Gold Online.  Interested girls should email to request a nomination.

Any Girl Scout who completed her Girl Scout Gold Award between March 1, 2014, and April 1, 2015, is eligible to apply for 2015.  Deadline for applications is 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, 2015.  Late applications will not be considered.  Learn more
