Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois is pleased to announce the five girls who were named Outstanding Graduating Girl Scouts at the annual Recognition of Excellence ceremony on Sunday, May 21.
Outstanding Graduating Girl Scouts are awarded a scholarship for demonstrating their extraordinary leadership in the Girl Scout Movement, in school, and in their communities. Along with sharing their achievements and contributions, girls who apply for the scholarship submit an essay entitled “What Girl Scouts Means to Me” along with a reference letter.
Outstanding Graduating Girl Scout Scholarships are funded from proceeds from the annual United We Lead Gala.
Congratulations to this year’s Outstanding Graduating Girl Scouts!
