In Your Honor
Recognizing outstanding Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts are making a difference in their community. On Saturday, May 10, 2014, Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital recognized hundreds of outstanding Girl Scouts who have earned the Gold Award and Silver Trefoil Award.
This year, 194 Girl Scouts from the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, and West Virginia were presented with the Gold Award at the In Your Honor ceremony at Trinity Washington University. The Gold Award is Girl Scouts’ highest honor; only six percent of Girl Scouts nationwide earn the Gold Award. These girls have demonstrated superior leadership, organization and a higher commitment to community service.
The Council also honored 170 Girl Scouts who earned the Silver Trefoil Award, a recognition that is unique to Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital. It is awarded to Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who have performed a minimum of 100 of service. To earn the award, girls are required to provide 25 hours of national service, 25 hours of global service and 50 hours of service to the Girl Scout Community.
At the ceremony, the Council awarded the President’s Award in Honor of Ethel G. Harvey to De’Jah L. and Summer K. Sixteen Gold Award honorees were also recognized as recipients of Gold Award scholarships.
Congratulations to everyone who was recognized at the In Your Honor ceremony. Take a look at pictures from the event:
