The President’s Award recognizes the efforts of a service-delivery team or committee whose exemplary service in support of delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience surpassed team goals and resulted in significant, measurable impact toward reaching the council’s overall goals.
A nomination form is completed and submitted to the council’s recognition committee, along with supporting documentation indicating how the nominee meets the criteria. This award requires 2 letters of endorsement in addition to the nomination. The recognition committee reviews the nomination documentation, then approves or denies it.
Example of Nominees
Members of a service-delivery team saw the need to better communicate information and opportunities with girls and adults in their area, so they organized a group of 15 teens and five volunteers, representing all communities in their jurisdiction, to create new communication strategies using social media (including Facebook, Twitter, and NING). As a result, 36 percent more girls attended their local events, 90 percent of open service-team positions were filled, and the council gained 1,350 friends on Facebook.
