Nomination for GSEMA Volunteer Recognitions
Thank you for nominating a fellow Girl Scout Volunteer for a GSUSA or GSEMA volunteer recognition. We are truly honored to have such gifted and giving individuals working with us toward our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
1. Submit a complete nomination.
The most successful descriptions make a volunteer's impact obvious with clear, precise numbers (hours spent, volunteers helped, girls impacted, cookie boxes sold, etc). If you're not sure of numbers, contact your Service Unit, Volunteer Support Specialist, or other volunteers in your area. Please read our Tips for Writing a Strong Nomination to help with this process!
2. Provide a second nominator with the link.
This step will automatically be completed by the form. At the end of the form, please identify a second person to nominate this volunteer; an email will automatically be sent to them with the request to fill out another nomination. You will receive an automatic email when they complete their nomination because you are listed as their second nominator.
3. Review by the Volunteer Recognition Committee
Once a candidate’s nominations are submitted, the Volunteer Recognition Committee reads through each nomination and endorsement. The Committee then recommends to the GSEMA Board of Directors which adult recognition each nominee should receive. After the board has made a decision on each nomination, our CEO will send a congratulatory letter to the Adult Recognition Awardees along with an invitation to our Volunteer Recognition Luncheon.
Thank you for recognizing the valuable work our volunteers do!
•The President's Award requires a separate form; please fill out the President's Award nomination and send three letters of endorsement to Customer Care at email@example.com
