Awards and Recognition


Our volunteers are changing the lives of girls in their communities every day. Some volunteers go above and beyond all expectations and have a definite impact on not only their troop, but their service unit and sometimes even the whole council. If you know an outstanding adult volunteer within Girl Scouts of the Missouri Heartland, please nominate them for a council award. We love to recognize these volunteers, but we need your help! Nomination forms will be available soon.
