What takes place at the Annual Council Recognition Luncheon?
Girl Scout volunteers are awesome! Whether in the form of a simple thank you for a small job well done or a formal commendation for years of faithful service, we use the Annual Council Awards Luncheon to put the spotlight on those adults who are making a difference. In Girl Scouts, there are several Girl Scout national awards as well as Council awards that are presented to volunteers.
Learn about the awards and details on how to nominate someone.
In addition to the adult awards, one girl award is presented at the luncheon, the Buck Harris Award. This award was established upon the retirement of Buck Harris, a former executive director of the Virginia Tidewater Girl Scout Council. Buck dedicated her life to providing the finest in camping and outdoor education programs. The recipient receives a framed certificate and a gift certificate towards attending a GSCCC sponsored summer camp. To qualify for the Buck Harris award, a girl must be nominated by the girls in her troop, group or service unit or by an adult who is aware of her qualifications.
