Silver Fish

The Silver Fish award celebrates outstanding service

The award is for an exceptional contribution to a wide section of Girlguiding, including international guiding either in the United Kingdom or abroad. This award may be given to an active adult member of Girlguiding or one of the Branch Associations.

Only a small number of these awards are granted.

Award criteria

The application should reflect the nominee’s outstanding service, which must be of an exceptionally high standard.

  • Guiding experience- the member should have held a range of roles in guiding at district/division/county levels and beyond. Within this range of roles the member should have demonstrated excellent leadership skills and made significant contributions as a team member.
  • Impact- the member should have made a significant contribution to supporting, motivating, nurturing and developing guiding for both girls and adults. This should be over a range of roles, both locally and internationally.
  • Personal attributes- the member should be outstanding and an exceptionally high achiever who is always ready to take on a challenge - someone who makes things happen, and who inspires and motivates people.
  • International- it's not essential for the member to have travelled abroad. However, their work should demonstrate a major contribution to guiding in other countries, resulting in the strengthening of guiding relationships between countries.
