Girls Scouts seek ‘Women of Influence’
Girl Scouts information
CINCINNATI — As the Girl Scouts celebrate their 100th anniversary, they are honoring 100 “Women of Influence” who make a difference in this community. Honorees are women who, through their lives and work, exemplify the leadership, diversity and spirit of the Girl Scout movement in one of four categories. Nomination forms can be found at www.girlscoutsofwesternohio.org and are accepted until August 31.
The categories that the honorees can be nominated for include:
Trailblazers – Women whose pioneering efforts opened doors for other women to follow. They may be the first women to have reached a particular career or professional milestone, participated in an organization or activity in a way that changed how women are involved, or challenged themselves in some way that created new opportunities for women.
Advocates – Women who have made significant contributions as volunteers within their own community or on a regional or national level. They are women whose lives exemplify the value of community service intrinsic to Girl Scouts.
Leaders of Promise – Women who are distinguishing themselves in their profession and/or community. They are women who demonstrate exceptional promise in terms of their ability to ascend to positions of greater responsibility and impact, and who exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law.
Honor Keepers – Women who have demonstrated outstanding commitment, exceptional service and an extraordinary dedication to the Girl Scout Movement. They are alumnae whose leadership, initiative and energy have strengthened Girl Scouting, made a significant contribution to the mission and who exemplify the true spirit of Girl Scouts.
An award reception honoring these women will take place September 27 from 5:30-7 p.m. at the Owens Corning World Headquarters in Toledo.
