One of our favorite days of the year is fast approaching!

Girl Scouts Honors Day will take place Sunday, May 1 at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena.

This long-running GSMIDTN tradition is an opportunity to recognize local Girl Scouts who have worked incredibly hard and achieved a Highest Award or Stellar Seller status, along with adult volunteers who have gone above and beyond for our organization.

We certainly hope to see you there! If you’ll be attending, here are a few things to keep in mind for the day.

The ceremony will begin at 2:00 p.m. 

We’ll open the doors at noon, giving people the opportunity to:

  • Take pictures at our photo booth (bring your own phone/camera!)
  • Look over our Gold Award exhibit
  • Check out the Cabin’s pop-up shop
  • Enjoy a couple mini programs
  • Mingle with Girl Scout friends!

Please make your way to your seats by 1:45 p.m.

We’re back at Lipscomb this year! 

Due to COVID-19 precautions, the 2020 and 2021 Honors Day events were either canceled or held outdoors. This year, we return to Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena (One University Park Drive, Nashville, TN 37204). There will be plenty of seating and room to space out at your comfort level.

Parking is free.

You’ll find ample parking in lots P, P1, and P2 on camps. An accessible entrance is in the loop in front of the arena.

Wear your uniform!

Honors Day is a time where we show off a little formality. Girl award recipients must be in official Girl Scout uniforms, including khaki pants or skirt, white shirt, and tunic, sash, or vest. Adult Award recipients may dress in business attire.

The ceremony will probably last between one-and-a-half to two hours. 

While we hope you can stay to support all of the day’s awardees, we understand if you have to leave after your Girl Scout’s award is presented. However, please try to not disrupt the ceremony for others; we recommend waiting for a transition point in the ceremony to exit.
