Girl Scouts of North East Ohio established the Women of Distinction Awards Luncheon to raise funds for Girl Scout scholarships and financial aid while honoring women who go above and beyond to make our communities better places to live, work, and raise a family.

We will also present the Leader of Tomorrow Scholarship Award. A Leader of Tomorrow is a Girl Scout who epitomizes the Girl Scout Mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place, while showing exceptional promise to become a leader. 

Last but not least, is the Advancing Women Award. This award is given to a company or organization that has been dedicated to the advancement of women in the workplace.
