Thank and recognize the adults who make a difference in the lives of girls by nominating someone you know for a council or service unit level award.
Council awards are presented at our Volunteer Conference and Celebration in August. These awards require a nomination and two endorsements, to be turned in to the service unit recognition chair or volunteer support coordinator.
Complete packets are due to our Balboa Campus by April 30. See our award guide and tips on writing nominations.

Service unit awards
Service unit awards are a way to recognize your local leaders and community partners. They are presented at the service unit’s end-of-year recognitions event.
Submit all nomination paperwork to your service unit recognitions chair for processing before the event. Ask her or him for specific deadlines.
Awards of Distinction recognize adult volunteers who have completed appropriate training and carried out the duties and responsibilities for their position.
The Spirit Award recognizes non-member individuals, groups, organizations, or businesses that offer service or non-monetary support to your service unit.
Service unit recognitions chairs
Service unit recognitions chairs manage adult volunteer awards for their area. If you are a recognitions chair, you can reference the Adult Recognitions in Girl Scouting manual; if you'd like to be one, contact your service unit manager to learn more about this role.
