The Jennie award is the only national honor that recognizes individual members for personal excellence.  The Jennie award is named for our founder Jane Cunningham Croly who wrote for the newspaper under the name of “Jennie June”. The award is an occasion to highlight extraordinary club Women who epitomize her spirit of independence, courage, and persistence in the community thru their roles as volunteers within their club, elsewhere in the community, and as members of their family or extended family.

This Chair Person is asking your Club to have a program for “Jennie”. Find out more about her extraordinary life.

 How much do you really know about your members outside of your club? When did they begin their life of being a volunteer? Girl Scouts, church, school, community?  Ask about other awards they may have received. After you have chosen a member send in your entry for judging, you have nothing to lose and you have given that wonderful Club woman the honor of being selected by you. Honor her at your meeting.
