Buck Harris Award

The Buck Harris Award was established upon the retirement of Buck Harris, a former executive director of the Virginia Tidewater Girl Scout Council. Buck dedicated her life to providing the finest in camping and outdoor camping education programs, and her friends felt that this award would be an appropriate way to honor her. The award is presented at Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast’s Annual Awards Celebration and consists of a framed certificate and a certificate towards attending a GSCCC-sponsored summer camp. One Girl Scout will be selected and honored in this manner. All other nominees will receive a nominee certificate.

Complete the nomination packet and submit it to customercare@gsccc.org by January 15, 2021.
