Volunteers are the hearts and hands of Girl Scouts.
We take pride in recognizing special individuals for their years of
membership, volunteer service, and exceptional contributions.
Thanks to all who submitted nominations last year, over 130
outstanding women and men were recognized at our Annual Awards
Luncheon in April 2016. This continued celebration of service depends
on you to nominate adult Girl Scouts in your communities. Please help
us honor our outstanding service of volunteers by submitting your
nomination by February 1st.
This year, we have combined the Years and Membership Numeral Guard
and Years of Service Pin request forms into one easy form. We’ve also
simplified the Suggested Letter of Endorsement Form.
All awards are described in the 2016-17 Adult Recognitions Manual
and Appendix of Forms which you can download below. Nominations for
outstanding service are based on what we all know best: The Girl
Scout Mission of building girls of Courage, Confidence and Character
who live by the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Several Council awards are named for long-time Girl Scouts who have
been influential in the history and on-going success of Silver Sage
Council. We have gathered brief biographies of these exceptional
women in the award descriptions so you can learn who they were and why
the award has meaning.
Thank you for the energy you bring to the Adult Recognitions
Program. We look forward to a lively Awards Ceremony at the Annual
Conference on April 7-8, 2017. Exciting plans are already underway!
Please read the short Manual to choose an appropriate award for
your candidate. Then click that award from the list below, and
everything you need will pop up right there! Please copy the
nomination form to your computer prior to filling it out. All other
instructions are on the forms.
Deadline is February 1, 2016 for Board-Approved Nomination Packets
