Girl Scouts of West Central Florida announces an open call for nominations for its prestigious Women of Distinction recognition. In addition to the Women of Distinction, the inaugural Woman of Promise Award will be presented to a deserving woman under the age of 35.

Women do not have to have been Girl Scouts to be nominated. Honorees are women whose accomplishments make them role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams.

Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 10. Visit gswcf.org/wod to download a nomination form. Those selected will be honored at a luncheon on March 19 at A La Carte Pavilion in Tampa.
