Nominations sought for Sierra Nevada Girl Scouts women in leadership awards
RENO, Nev. — Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada is seeking nominations to honor six extraordinary women across Northern Nevada for the organization’s 16th annual “TRIUMPHANT: Celebrating Women in Leadership Awards.”
According to Girl Scouts, six women will be recognized at this year’s awards in six categories representing the focus areas of Girl Scouts:
• Financial Literacy
• Environmental Leadership
• Community Service
• STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics)
• Healthy Living
“Nominees are to demonstrate initiative, integrity and leadership characteristics, but are not required to have been a Girl Scout,” according to a statement provided by Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada. “Nominees must live or work in Northern Nevada or northeastern California. They should exemplify extraordinary civic, professional and/or philanthropic commitment and achievement, and be a role model for girls.”
Nominations will be reviewed by the GSSN Selection Committee; honorees and G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) champions will be announced in August.
Honorees and G.I.R.L. champions will be recognized at the TRIUMPHANT: Celebrating Women in Leadership Awards Dinner on Nov. 15 at the Nugget Casino Resort in Sparks.
