Girl Scouts seek nominations for award honoring phenomenal women under 40

Nominations are now open for the Girl Scout of the Jersey Shore’s second annual Phenom Awards. The award honors emerging, young, female leaders under the age of 40 from Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Phenom Award nominees should be outstanding performers who understand the hard work and dedication necessary to be a success. The award not only recognizes young, professional women for who they are, but also for the potential for what they might achieve in their futures.

Nominations for the award can be submitted through the Girl Scouts’ website at jerseyshoregirlscouts.org/phenom. Nominees must be a resident of Monmouth or Ocean counties or be employed/affiliated with a business or organization located in Monmouth and Ocean counties. A nominee does not need to be a current or former Girl Scout, but she must be under age 40 on December 31, 2017 to be considered.

This year’s nomination deadline is Wednesday, May 31. Award recipients will be notified after that date. Five award recipients from each county will be honored at a special reception Thursday, September 14, at the Park Pavilion in Seaside Park.
