Women of Distinction


Women of Distinction is a nationwide Girl Scouts of the USA program that recognizes the achievements of women. As Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York educates girls to be future community leaders, we want to recognize the community leaders of today.  Since 1985, GSNENY has been hosting Women of Distinction events across the council. Honorees are awarded for their strength of character, dedicated community service, emphasis on life-long learning, along with their dedication to fostering self-confidence and leadership skills in others. These events are one of many ways we keep Girl Scouting vibrant in our communities. Many women who are leaders in their fields credit Girl Scouting with helping them build the set of skills that paved their road to success.



Thank you for supporting the 2019 event! It was a successful evening, raising $17,000 for local Girl Scout programs while celebrating this year’s honorees.
Please consider nominating a local woman for next year’s event. Nominations are being accepted now through December 31, 2019!
