Adult Recognition Awards 2013

Volunteers Make a Difference Day

Our Vision:
Through the development and implementation of the Volunteer Recognition System, Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas Council will recognize their contributions, support their efforts, and challenge its volunteers not only to continue but also to help cultivate new volunteers.

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas has developed the following Volunteer Recognition System to ensure that all our volunteers are given the proper appreciation and recognition. In the Adult Recognitions Handbook you will find the necessary information that will help you decide which recognitions are available in order to nominate the volunteers in your community. You will find recognition descriptions, nomination forms and applications.



All inquiries regarding Adult Recognitions contact:

Watch the web site or check with your Membership Executive for registration packets. Dates are listed below. For more information, call Terry or Caroline at the numbers listed below.
