A representative from council will contact you within 7 business days with confirmation that you’ve completed the workshop. Now you can begin your Silver Award! Please keep in mind that the Silver Award requires a minimum of 50 hours (per girl), so be sure to plan accordingly. If you would like to be recognized at this year’s Young Women of Distinction, you will need to complete your project and fill out the Silver Award Final Report no later than March 15. Otherwise, you will be recognized at the following year’s ceremony.
