Tribute to Achievement

The time is now for girls to say, My Voice Matters

The 28th Annual Tribute to Achievement Dinner took place on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at Four Seasons Hotel Chicago.

The evening showcased a dynamic conversation as Girl Scouts, women, and corporate leaders spoke to key moments in their lives when their voices made an impact personally, professionally, and socially. 

Together, when we actively listen and try to understand, we can increase a girl's sense of self-worth, her access to opportunities, her decision-making power and control over her own life, and her ability to change the world. 

We are grateful to those who took action and supported the event. If you could not attend, you can still support this movement and make a difference by supporting Girl Scouting with the critical funding we need to help girls find their voices early and develop the confidence to use them for a lifetime. 

Girls chase dreams. Girls champion issues. Girls change the world. 

Let girls know you are listening. Join the #MyVoiceMatters movement and donate today.
