2011 Girl Recognition Event

The Girl Recognition Event is held every year in order to celebrate the accomplishments of girls who have completed their Lady Baden-Powell, Canada Cord or Chief Commissioner’s Awards over the last Guiding year. 32 girls were awarded the Lady Baden-Powell Award and 14 Canada Cords!

Guest speaker Dianea Carroll Phillips, a teacher and NASA certified Aerospace Educator, set the tone of the event with her motto: “If you can dream it, you can do it!”  Event organizer and Lakeshore District Deputy District Commissioner Kelly Vandzura said that Phillips “showed girls they can challenge themselves and accomplish the goals they set for themselves – and to know that their guiders are there to support them along the way.”

Hosted by the Lakeshore District this year, District Commissioner Nissa Grant called the event “a district collaboration,” and noted that “Guiders, you should be very proud of your girls.”  Indeed, we are all very proud of the efforts of the girls that received awards, and thankful to all of those who collaborated in making the day a rousing success!

    I have 4 girls in Guides on track to complete the Lady B-P Challenge by the end of this Guiding year. How do I make sure they take part in a Girl Recognition Event like this?
