Nominees do not need to be previous Girl Scouts. A connection to the organization is recommended.

Girl Scouts of Texas Oklahoma Plains announces that nominations are open for the 2022 Fort Worth Women of Distinction awards.

The annual event recognizes leaders in business, government, education and philanthropy who are dedicated to service and leadership in their community. The Women of Distinction program is composed of five awards:
