First launched in 1993 in Columbia, SC, the Women of Distinction Event is a recognition and fundraising dinner that celebrates and honors outstanding women for their professional accomplishments, service to others, and impact on their community. Each year the Girl Scouts call upon the public to help identify women who exemplify excellence both through their professional achievements as well as their community volunteerism. Honorees are chosen based on four criteria: professional/community leadership, professional/community service, strong role model for girls and community visibility.
The Girl Scouts of South Carolina—Mountains to Midlands hosts Women of Distinction events throughout our service area each year. We encourage you to participate by nominating an outstanding leader in your community, attending an event and join us in honoring our Women of Distinction, and committing to community partnership in sponsorship of these events.
