COVID Guidelines

Nominate a Volunteer for a Board-Approved Award
It is that time of year to nominate a hardworking volunteer who goes above and beyond in their role with Girl Scouts. Whether a troop leader, a cookie manager or service unit specialist, our organization would not be the same without these individuals. You can find the list of Board-Approved Awards here and the nominations requirements here. Nominations are due by Tuesday, February 1.

Years of Membership and Years of Service
How long have you been a member of Girl Scouts? Know anyone who needs to be recognized for their long history in Girl Scouts? Years of Membership and Years of Volunteer Service pins are awarded in five-year increments and awarded each year at our Annual Meeting. Fill out this form by March 1 to let us know if you need a pin for this year. ​
Cookie Business Badges
The new Cookie Business badges help girls think like entrepreneurs as they run their own cookie businesses and incorporate online sales via the Smart Cookies platform. The badges progress from goal setting and sales-pitching in person and online to using market research and creating business plans. Girls now have even more opportunities to experience digital sales and marketing than ever before as part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Learn more about the badges here
