Young Women of Distinction
In response to the growing number of USA Girl Scouts Overseas doing amazing, impactful Gold Award projects, the USAGSO organization created a new international award in 2017. This is similar to the USAGSA's National Young Women of Distinction Award which is only awarded to ten girls per year globally.
In 2017, Singapore's very own Roopal K. was named one of the first recipients of the USAGSO Young Woman of Distinction Award! Her Gold Award project, Closing the Digital Divide, was chosen as one of the top five projects in all of USA Girl Scouts Overseas this year.
