GSUSA Awards

GSAK relies on a network of 1,500 dedicated volunteers to lead troops, chaperone events, coach LEGO robotics teams, and lead Women of Science & Technology Day workshops – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!

We recognize our talented volunteers’ dedication and commitment and believe it is important to honor exemplary service and commitment to Girl Scouts of Alaska and Alaska’s girls, which is why we accept award nominations at any time.

Awards are presented each year at the Adult Learning Summit, Service Unit Meetings, and/or other appropriate venues.
