Women of Distinction

Green text reads "29th Annual Women of Distinction: October 2021" Beneath the title, sweeping, bright green paint strokes.

Each autumn, to celebrate the birthday of Girl Scouts Founder Juliette Gordon Low, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York gather to honor Women of Distinction. A Woman of Distinction is an influential leader in her industry and community - someone who exemplifies the leadership ideals found in Girl Scouting through her actions. In addition, we honor one extraordinary Girl Scout who represents the values inherent in Girl Scouting as a Future Woman of Distinction.

We believe every girl should have the opportunity to be a leader in her community. Funds raised at the Women of Distinction event help meet rising demand for our leadership programs, which prepare girls to lead with courage, confidence, character, and make the world a better place.

Stay tuned to learn more!

The Future Woman of Distinction Award is given to one Ambassador Girl Scout in New York City each year who represents the ideals inherent in Girl Scouting through her participation in and commitment to community service, high academic achievement, leadership skills and ability to communicate the value of Girl Scouting. If you know a Girl Scout entering the 12th grade come the Fall, share this award opportunity with them!

Applications are due by Friday, August 27, 2021.

 

About the Girl Scouts of Greater New York

Since 1913, the Girl Scouts of Greater New York has served more than five million girls in New York City, preparing them to lead with courage, confidence, and character, and make the world a better place. Today, we serve tens of thousands of girls ages 5 to 18 in every zip code of New York City’s five boroughs. 70% of the girls we serve come from low-to-moderate income homes; their participation is heavily subsidized by the Council.

All of the proceeds from our annual Women of Distinction Event directly benefit the leadership programs for New York City Girl Scouts.
