The Women of Distinction Awards program is the premier fundraising event for Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. First celebrated in 1976, the event has grown to include three events within our council area. Each awards program honors local women who have made significant contributions in their professions and communities.
Proceeds from the Women of Distinction events directly support the Girl Scouts’ mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place, and your financial support will be used to keep Girl Scouting strong throughout North-Central Alabama.
There are 15,000 girl members in Girl Scouts of North-Central Alabama. Through fundraising events like the Women of Distinction Awards, we can achieve our mission of developing leadership, decision-making skills and commitment to community in this generation of girls.
