The Inspiring Women of Iowa event celebrates inspiring women in our community, with proceeds benefitting Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa. Our event honors three women, one in each of the following categories: Courage, Confidence, and Character. Nominees can be anyone regardless of Girl Scout history – but they should be able to demonstrate that they have used courage, confidence or character in their daily lives. The nominees can be amazing artists, savvy business leaders or the unsung hero in our community. They could be your mentor, your sister or someone who has inspired you at some point in your life. 

The nomination period for the 2019 event will open this winter. Fill out the form below if you'd like us to notify you when nominations open.
