How do I nominate someone for a Laurel award?

Any member of Girlguiding may initiate an application for this award. Make sure you have read the full criteria and guidelines on the Girlguiding website.

The nomination needs to be discussed with the relevant commissioner. Applications should be submitted without the knowledge of the nominee or their family and be accompanied by a fully completed awards application form, a copy of the member's Guiding History Report and letters of support (no more than eight in total). Further guidance for writing a letter of support is below; if possible, the letters should not be repetitive and each should cover a different aspect of the nomineeโ€™s service. The letters should include the supporter's role/position.
