Women of Distinction is a nationwide program of Girl Scouts of the USA that recognizes the achievement of women.  As Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York educates girls to be future community leaders, we want to recognize the community leaders of today.  Honorees are awarded for their strength of character, dedicated community service, emphasis on life-long learning, along with their dedication to fostering self-confidence and leadership skills in others.   Many women who are leaders in their fields credit Girl Scouting with helping them build the set of skills that paved their road to success.
