Everyday volunteers deliver on Juliette Gordon Low’s vision to give every girl the opportunity to be a Girl Scout. Quite simply, without our volunteers there would be no Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington recognizes the time and dedication our adult volunteers give to open up a lifetime of opportunities for our young women.
Our recognition system applies to every level and area of the council’s structure and jurisdiction. Leaders, parents, friends in the community, service unit volunteers, staff, and board members can all be recognized for their support of Girl Scouts.
Below are resources to help you recognize the amazing efforts of the adults in our council. Nomination forms can be picked up at your local service center or printed off the forms page found here. Due January 15
