Volunteer Recognitions & Nominations

It’s here! Go to www.gsnetx.org/awardnominations to nominate your outstanding volunteer now.
Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GSNETX) appreciates ALL of our volunteers and feel they all deserve to be recognized for their contributions. This can be accomplished through APPRECIATION and AWARDS. 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. AWARDS are given for outstanding contributions that have made a significant impact on girls.

The council’s award system is built around the guidelines established by GSUSA. Several factors weigh heavily in the award process and include:
  • Quality of accomplishment is the primary determining factor in awarding recognition.
  • Impact on girls is the leading measure of quality.
  • Different kinds of accomplishments must be considered: time, talent, as well as donations of resources.
  • Quality is not judged by length of service or number of other recognitions; it is ultimately a function of impact, direct or indirect, with girls.
  • Recognition is given to reinforce high expectations and encourage continual improvement. It is not a competition. Recognitions create a strategic advantage because they identify those who model the future. Recipient’s performance is part of what moves a council towards it goals.
  • Publicly honoring adults underscores Girl Scouting’s vitality in the community. It encourages greater involvement and support from other adults and organizations – all with the goal of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place.
