Volunteer Awards

The heart of Girl Scouting is our indispensable volunteers who make it all possible!

Because volunteers contribute their time and skills in many ways, there are several Adult Awards that are available to recognize their efforts.

Nominations are accepted year-round and are reviewed by the Awards Committee at the end of January for board approval on the 2nd Tuesday of February. Deadline for 2020 Adult Recognitions is January 15, 2021. Any questions please contact Brittany Carver at or 888-623-1237 ext. 1608.
