Each award requires a completed nomination form and two or more endorsements. Each award has specific criteria. Traditionally, the endorsements have been letters but there are several new options for supporting a nomination - letters of endorsement may still be submitted, but we also encourage new methods such as video nominations to give girls and volunteers the opportunity to recognize their leaders in an exciting way!
Nominations should be sent in along with a photograph (if possible) which will be shown at the recognitions ceremony.
