Girl Scouts of West Central Florida announces an open call for nominations for its prestigious Women of Distinction recognition. In addition to the Women of Distinction, nominations are also being accepted for the Woman of Promise Award which recognizes a deserving young woman under the age of 35. Nominations will be accepted through Wednesday, Sept. 11; applications can be downloaded from the council’s website, www.gswcf.org/wod.
Those selected as honorees are women who have achieved success in their chosen fields and whose accomplishments make them positive role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams. They exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service.
The 2014 Women of Distinction and the Woman of Promise will be honored at the thirteenth annual Women of Distinction luncheon on March 18, 2014 at A La Carte Event Pavilion in Tampa. The luncheon benefits nearly 21,000 girls served by Girl Scouts of West Central Florida.
To be considered, Women of Distinction and Woman of Promise nominees must live within Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s geographic boundaries (Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, and Sumter counties). Nominees must agree to attend the luncheon in person on March 18, 2014 to accept the award. Women are not required to have been or currently be a Girl Scout to be nominated.
The Women of Distinction and Woman of Promise Selection Committee will review the nominations received on or before Sept. 11 and will select four Women of Distinction honorees and one Woman of Promise honoree, with all honorees being announced in late September.
