Volunteer Recognitions

We have the best volunteers! Now it's time to publicly recognize them.

At Girl Scouts Heart of the South, we know that your time is precious and how you contribute as a volunteer is invaluable. It makes everything we do possible!

We value all our volunteers and every year, there are formal recognitions in Girl Scouting to acknowledge the accomplishments of those who go above and beyond our expectations.

We invite parents, girls, volunteers, and staff to nominate an adult for any of the adult recognitions listed.

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.

The Volunteer of Excellence award recognizes those volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering directly with girls in any pathway to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the national program portfolio or who have contributed outstanding service in support of the council’s mission delivery to girl and adult members.

The Thanks Badge recognizes adults whose service has benefited the entire Council, and is so significantly above and beyond the call of duty that no other award would be appropriate.

The Thanks Badge II recognizes adults who have received the Thanks Badge and have continued to provide outstanding service to the entire Council or entire Girl Scout organization.

The Years of Service Pin recognizes an adult member for years of active volunteer service at five-year intervals.
