St. Anne

About the Emblem:

Saint Anne, the mother of the Virgin Mary, is a fitting and apt model for this, the highest award given by the Diocesan Catholic Committee on Scouting to persons who have given selflessly to Catholic young women in the Girl Scouts of the USA or American Heritage Girls. This award is given under the auspices of the National Federation of Catholic Youth Ministry and careful evaluation by the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Committee on Scouting with the goal of being highly selective.. This medal is considered to be comparable to the St. George emblem for Boy Scouts. This medal is not an award to be earned, but rather an honor one is nominated for by others. As such, all nominations should be made confidentially to the selection committee of the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Committee on Scouting.


    • Any adult who is working in the Girl Scout or AHG program with Catholic youth

    • For adults who have made significant contributions in the field of Catholic relationships,

    • Lay men and women, Deacons, priests, religious, or non-Catholic,

    • The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton award should have been awarded first


To recognize the recipient’s outstanding contribution to the spiritual development of the Catholic youth in the program of the Girl Scouts or AHG. An individual, Unit, or Parish may submit the name of a possible candidate for the reception of this emblem. A candidate may be submitted by a group of individuals who are active in youth affairs, a registered leader in the parish, or by the pastor. Approval of the pastor must be acquired before application will be considered.

NOTE: Generally, this award is recommended to be given after the St. Anne recognition. Although, accomplishment and sustained dedication are more significant than a specific number of years in Scouting or AHG, it is generally expected that this individual will have a record of 6 or more years of commitment.
