The Badgerland LEADERS Awards recognize volunteers who exemplify one of the qualities listed below. These volunteers abide by the Girl Scout Promise and Law, encourage the same attributes in each of our members, and show progression as a leader. They can be involved at any level of volunteering -  from first-year to long-time volunteers, parent helpers to Service Unit Leadership Team members.  Volunteers can be nominated for more than one award, however, can only be awarded one letter per year.
