Adult Recognition Award Program
GSGLA volunteers are the heartbeat and the core of our organization. Quite literally, Girl Scouting would not exist without the dedication and talents of our volunteers. We couldn’t serve the girls without you, and the untold hours of time that you give define our excellence as a council.
In Girl Scouting, we want to recognize and celebrate our volunteers and their service.
GSGLA holds a Volunteer Recognition Ceremony each Spring to honor our outstanding volunteers. Volunteers are nominated for prestigious Girl Scout awards and recognitions.

The handbook and nomination and order forms were created as fillable PDFs (most). The nomination and order forms are also available as fillable Word documents.
In general, the awards, which are presented at the council award event, must be received at a service center by the second Friday in December.
NOTE: If you have Adobe Acrobat installed, you can add text to and save PDFs that are fillable. Adobe Reader will only allow you to fill in information, but not save the document.
Due Dates: Always check the handbook for the specific dates for the award you are considering. In general, the awards, which are presented at the council award event, must be received at a service center by the second Friday in December. Other awards may have due dates established by the service unit. If a pin or patch needs to be ordered through the council, then the order needs 30 days to be processed and delivered.
