Volunteer of Excellence:
A year-round award which recognizes a volunteer who has contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the GSLE. Girl Scout members can nominate volunteers for this award and then submit nominations to the Adult Recognition Committee. Please see the Criteria Page below for year-round submission deadlines.
Recognition & Appreciation
Giving and receiving recognition is an important component of the Volunteer Development System in Girl Scouting. A card from the girls, a handmade gift, an e-mail message or a surprise party are ways to say “thank you” to adults in Girl Scouts. Adult Girl Scouts may also be nominated for Adult Awards throughout the year. Please remember to recognize the adults who are focused on making the Girl Scout experience fun, positive and available to girls and adults everywhere!
