Each year, we honor our Gold and Silver Award recipients, as well as our volunteers who have achieved a Board-Approved award at an annual recognition event. Family and friends gather to recognize the service and leadership of girls who earn Girl Scouting’s highest awards and volunteers alike.
Invitations are sent to award recipients in April. All award recipients who wish to attend must RSVP. Attire for award recipients is a unifying look that includes sash/vest for displaying official pins and awards, combined with a solid white shirt and khaki pants/skirt or an official adult uniform. No shorts or flip flops.
