Girl Scouts of Orange County Announces 2018 Celebrate Leadership Honorees
Girl Scouts of Orange County today announced the 2018 roster of Celebrate Leadership honorees - four extraordinary local female Girl Scout alum and trailblazers in our community and two outstanding Gold Award Girl Scouts who have taken action to change the world forever and for better. All six honorees are to be recognized at the ninth annual Celebrate Leadership event on October 12, 2018 at the Fashion Island Hotel in Newport Beach.  Learn more about this year’s incredible honorees.

Your valuable participation at Celebrate Leadership will help provide vital resources so more girls in Orange County can channel their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-Getter, Innovator, Risk Taker, Leader)TM  and develop the skills they need to practice a lifetime of leadership.  Research shows that 78% of Girl Scouts have had leadership experiences outside of the classroom, compared to 55% of non-Girl Scouts and 61% of boys.

We are looking for sponsors, attendees, and auction items!

*Community Spotlight Opportunity: Sponsors of $3,500 or more have the unique opportunity to recognize a deserving female, their organization's very own G.I.R.L., who inspires others, finds opportunities to collaborate, or is committed to making her workplace and community a better place.  Each Spotlight recipient will be recognized in the event program and be presented with flowers at the event by a Girl Scout.  Become a Spotlight sponsor today!
