Thanks Badge II

Thanks Badge II


The Thanks Badge II honors a previous Thanks Badge recipient who has continued to provide exemplary service in a leadership role, resulting in a measurable impact that benefits the total council or entire Girl Scout Movement.


The nominee is an active, registered adult Girl Scout.

The nominee has received the Thanks Badge.

The outstanding service performed by the nominee resulted in outcomes that benefitted the total council or the entire Girl Scout organization, and is so significantly above and beyond the call of duty that no other award would be appropriate.

The nominee actively recognizes, understands, and practices the values of inclusive behavior.


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 4 letters of endorsement in addition to the nomination. The recognition committee reviews the nomination documentation, then approves or denies it. The recognition committee sends notification of the decision to the council’s board of directors for confirmation.

Example of Nominee

After receiving the Thanks Badge, the volunteer from the Thanks Badge example was motivated by the success of the Take-Action Tree House project and submitted to present this best practice at a GSUSA conference. She then served for two years on a national task group to help educate and support all 111 other councils as they create long-term plans that integrate all council departments to implement the cap pathway to grow membership and deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) through Journey use.
