We want to honor every Girl Scout in our council who has earned an award this year, but we need to do so safely. Although many venues are opening again, there are still capacity limits in place. In addition, our traditional ceremony location, the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center, is currently in use as a COVID-19 vaccine site.

After careful consideration and positive feedback from last year's celebration, we have decided to host a virtual 2021 Young Women of Distinction Awards Ceremony on June 12, 2021. Together we will celebrate girls receiving the Girl Scout Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, Journey Summit, Religious Recognitions, and 10-Year Pins, along with graduating Girl Scouts and Cookie Entrepreneurs.

Some special 2021 highlights:

  • We are thrilled to honor our 2021 Girl Scout Gold Award recipients in person on May 16, 2021. These awardees will receive a separate communication with details, including guest counts, social distancing practices, space limitations, and other logistics.
  • We are also planning to honor all award recipients at an in-person celebration this fall. It will be a chance to celebrate accomplishments and kick off a new Girl Scout year. Stay tuned!
  • Girl Scout Silver and Bronze Award recipients - be on the lookout for a special delivery headed your way before June 12!  
  • All award recipients are invited to submit an accomplishment photo - hold a sign listing the award(s) you will be receiving and show us your spirit! Please submit your photo by Monday, May 10 to be included in the virtual presentation.
  • Girl Scouts who are 2021 high school graduates will be honored in a special photo montage, so please submit your creative graduation photo by Monday, May 10 to be included in the virtual presentation.
