How do I nominate someone for a Guiding Star award?

The nomination needs to be discussed with the relevant commissioner. Applications should be submitted without the knowledge of the nominee or their family and must be accompanied by a fully completed awards application form, a copy of the member's Guiding History Report, and letters of support from appropriate guiding and non-guiding people.
