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.

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 January. 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.
