Think of the last time you saw a volunteer do something amazing: a leader who went out of their way to help girls reach a goal or attend and activity; a service team member who went above and beyond to help you succeed. Girl Scouts is possible because of volunteers just like this who give their time and talent to make the world a better place for girls. What better way to say "thank you" than to nominate them for a Girl Scout award?
There are all kinds of Girl Scout awards available to recognize the many different people - leaders, parents, friends in the community, service team members - who make Girl Scouting happen:
- Is there a brand new leader who has been outstanding in their first year? Check out the Rising Star award designed for leaders new to Girl Scouts.
- How about an inspiring experienced volunteer who is a shining example of an ideal leader? Try the Guiding Star award.
- What about the parent or volunteer in your troop who loves the outdoors and shares that passion with girls? They could receive the Outdoor Enthusiast award.
- That service team member whom your area would flounder without? They deserve the national level Appreciation Pin.
Whatever a volunteer's strengths, there's an award to show your (or your troop’s) appreciation for everything they do. To nominate a rock star in your community, check out our Adult Recognition page. Here you'll find both frequently asked questions and an in-depth guide to each award and how to nominate someone.
