The Distinguished Women's Award Celebration is Girl Scouts of
Central Maryland’s annual signature fundraiser that honors Baltimore
area women who reflect the attributes that Girl Scouting aspires to
instill in every girl.
In 2018, event proceeds ensured that all girls who wanted to
participate in Girl Scouts could. Funds raised helped keep program
fees low, offered financial assistance for memberships and resident
camp, and provided volunteer training—expanding our capacity to serve
girls throughout central Maryland.

today’s girls are acquiring the courage, confidence, character, and
skills they need to take the reins of leadership in the 21st century.

Shadow Girl Program
Each year, five high school-aged Girl Scouts are selected to serve as
Shadow Girls as part of GSCM's annual Distinguished Women's Award
Celebration. Each Shadow Girl is paired with an honoree and has the
opportunity to spend the day with her. During their day together,
Shadow Girls experience a typical day in her mentor's role and learn
more about how she navigated her career. The Shadow Girl Program is an
excellent way for girls to explore career interests and learn more
about the female leadership experience.
Each year, Girl Scouts of Central Maryland holds a Distinguished
Women's Award Celebration to celebrate outstanding leaders in central
Maryland whose professional accomplishments and community
contributions make them positive role models for today’s Girl Scouts.
The Distinguished Women honorees exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and
Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference
in the lives of their fellow citizens through community service. In
highlighting these women, we hope to inspire girls to achieve their
own goals and dreams.
