New Directory Celebrates Highest Award in Girl Scouting
The Gold Award Alliance represents an elite group of women who have achieved the highest award in Girl Scouts since 1916. This directory will feature inspirational stories about these exceptional women, all of whom embody the Girl Scout spirit of independence and leadership and have left behind a lasting legacy in their communities.
Join your fellow Gold Award Alliance recipients by participating in the first-ever Girl Scout Gold Award Alliance Directory.
- Share your community success and inspire others.
- This project is being put together by Harris Connect at no cost to Girl Scouts. It is funded exclusively by sales of the book to Gold Award Alliance recipients.
In addition to the directory, a new Girl Scout Gold Award Alliance pin is being created that can be purchased individually or in combination with either the print or CD-ROM edition of the directory.
If you are a Gold Award Alliance recipient and wish to participate, please call Harris Connect toll-free at 866-874-7479.
Phone lines close September 16, 2013.
