Girl Scouts-Dakota Horizons Women of Distinction awards

Women of Distinction Awards

Over the last 22 years, Girl Scouts—Dakota Horizons has been honoring outstanding women, girls and businesses who have made a difference in your community. These individuals are nominated by their peers and chosen by a selection committee through their accomplishments to receive one of the following awards.

This year, in the spirit of collaboration, we’ve partnered with Buffalo Gals to present our awards at the first ever International Women’s Day Conference on March 4-5 at the Rushmore Plaza Holiday Inn in Rapid City. This is your chance to champion women and the talents they bring to the table, continue to show your support for Girl Scouts—Dakota Horizons and keep the welfare of our community top of mind. Please consider submitting a nomination for one of these prestigious awards.

These individuals don’t always receive the recognition they deserve and we are proud to be able to do that and show the community their local leaders!

Buffalo Gals seeks to shift the conversation about women’s active roles and participation in our local communities. For many years the story led with what men had not done for women, about the effects of living in a patriarchal society. Buffalo Gals honors the support many of our fathers, brothers, uncles and colleagues have done to open doors and create opportunities for women. Buffalo Gals believes wholeheartedly it is essential women become committed to our success, creation of networks and communities of practice creating pipelines of healthy success for our daughters, nieces - our future generations.
