Adult recognition is a way to honor adult volunteers whose services directly or indirectly support or enhance girl experiences in Girl Scouting. The quality of the individual’s accomplishments is a key factor for recognizing someone.
When an individual or group in Girl Scouting has served with unusual distinction for a larger geographic area, formal recognition may be appropriate. Honoring the service of our adult volunteers for their strong commitment and devotion to Girl Scouting is an established part of the Girl Scout program. These awards reinforce the qualities and service that Girl Scouting values provide.
Formal council level awards are presented each spring at the GSNEO Adult Recognition Event. Nominations and endorsements are accepted at any time throughout the year; but each year there is a cut off date of February 1. Nominations/endorsements received after February 1 will be awarded at the following years’ recognition event.
To Nominate or endorse a volunteer please complete the appropriate form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org before February 1.
For information regarding Service Unit Awards and Presidents Award, Service Unit Directors should contact their Community Membership Executive.

The Honor Pin recognizes an individual’s exemplary service in support of deliver-ing the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, which has had measurable impact on two or more geographic areas of service, allowing the council to reach and surpass its mission-delivery goals.
