Showing love and appreciation for our volunteers is a
long-standing Girl Scout tradition. After all, our
volunteers are amazing! Our volunteers are all about the girls. We
love them for it and Girl Scouting wouldn’t be the same without
them. Some volunteers
go above and beyond all expectations and have a definite impact
on not only their troop, but their service unit and sometimes
the whole Council.
Adult Recognitions are our way to say thank you to those who work
hard to help us successfully fulfill our mission of building girls of
courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
This includes volunteers and staff within Girl Scouting, as well as
individuals and organizations outside of Girl Scouting, who provide
outstanding service and support to our council members.
Deadline: Nominations for service performed during the
2019 (submitted after April 2019) or 2020 membership year will be
accepted through April 15th, 2020.
An informal recognition is another way you might say “thank you” to
someone to show appreciation. These are usually given within the
Service Unit, and can include:
• Flowers presented, or a special citation read, at a meeting.
• A framed photograph.
• Birthday or holiday greetings made by the girls.
• Recognitions can also be created by your Service Unit team (i.e.
“Rookie of the Year,” “Most Valuable Team Member,” etc.).
Consider these fun (and easy) ideas for recognitions:
• Note cards: “For a noteworthy achievement.”
• Batteries: “You’ve added energy to our group.”
• Roll of Lifesavers candy: “You’ve been a lifesaver.”
