Awards & Recognition
The presentation of awards and recognition is part of the girl core program in the form of pins, badges and certificates as well as praise from others. Adult members also receive awards and recognition through nominations by other members. There are both national and provincial awards. Both national and provincial scholarship application deadline dates are April 1 of the current Guiding year.
Other award opportunities:
- Government of Canada - Prime Minister's Volunteer Awards
- Ontario Government - Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship
- FPYN - City Champion (youth 14-24)
Girls receive program badges when they accomplish a new skill, learn information or perform service to others. Each branch of the girl program has different badges that are awarded. Girls also receive program-based certificates of achievement from their guiders or as part of an award ceremony.
There are Enrolment, Advancement and Program completion ceremonies for girls. These are often locally-based and held as a unit or in conjunction with other units.
Adults are nominated for awards through the use of the R.3P (Application for Provincial Awards) and the R.3N (Application for National Awards) forms and a process outlined in GGC's Adult Member Support Procedures, Module 6
