Girl Scouts seeking nominations for Women of Distinction awards

Do you know an outstanding woman making significant strides in her community? Consider nominating her for the “Women of Distinction” awards.

“Women of Distinction” awards are presented at the Girl Scouts of Western New York’s signature fundraising event where women are honored throughout Western New York for their strength in character, dedication to community service and commitment to mentoring and encouraging girls and young women.

“The Western New York region has a wealth of talented business and community-oriented female leaders and we would like to recognize their contributions,” says Cindy Odom, Chief Executive Officer for the Girl Scouts of Western New York. She adds, “According to our Research Institute, girls’ future career choices are more influenced by inspiring role models and this event exposes girls to women who have accomplished extraordinary success in their lives.”

Submit nomination forms by May 31 to or by mailing to Girl Scouts of Western New York, c/o Kristie Foster, 3332 Walden Ave., Suite 106, Depew 14043.

“Women of Distinction” Awards Dinner will be held Sept. 19 from 5:30-9 p.m. Location to be determined.
