Do you know a Girl of Merit?

We invite nominations of girls 11-18 years old who have proven themselves exceptional members of the community through their actions, activities, leadership, and positive influence on others. Nominations may be submitted by any member of the community, including parents, teachers, counselors, mentors, local leaders and others.


What Makes a Girl of Merit?

  • A girl with vision, tenacity and intention.
  • A girl who gives of herself in order to better the lives of others.
  • A girl who shows compassion and makes sacrifices for others.
  • A girl who is committed to excellence in all areas of her life.

Please note that while we would love to honor every girl, we receive hundreds of nominations each year and unfortunately we cannot select everyone. Those who are selected to receive the award will be contacted by a Girls World Expo representative. Nominations generally close 17 days prior to each Expo. Thank you.
