Girl Greatness Awards

Girls in Guiding do amazing things every day. They leap into action, overcome obstacles, come up with brilliant ideas, and pretty much add a little bit of awesomeness to the world around them. Now it's time to be recognized!

Girl Guides of Canada's Girl Greatness Awards are all about applauding girl members who accomplish great things in their lives and in their communities. The awards recognize one girl per branch who has excelled in one of the following award categories:

  • Confidence
  • Resourcefulness
  • Courage
  • Making a Difference

Ready. Set. Nominate!

Girl members are encouraged to nominate a fellow girl member for one of the award categories. Girls can also nominate themselves.

Each of the 20 Girl Greatness Award recipients will receive an award pin and a certificate signed by the Chief Commissioner. All girls who are nominated will receive a certificate of recognition.

YOU are Girl Greatness. It’s time to let the world know it.
