Awards & Recognitions

Girl Scouts – Diamonds of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas appreciates our volunteers and feel they all deserve to be recognized for their contributions. This can be accomplished through appreciations and awards. The Volunteer Service Hour Awards submission deadline is February 15. The Adult Recognition Awards submission deadline is April 15. 

Appreciation is an ongoing, daily process for all volunteers. Showing appreciation for one another is one way to show respect, to relate to each other’s strengths and to build mutual commitment for Girl Scouting. Check out 50 Awesome Appreciation Ideas

Awards are given for outstanding contributions that have made a significant impact on girls. You many nominate outstanding volunteers in your community.
