Girls are changing the world!

Girl Guides of Canada’s Change Maker Award exists to recognize the courageous and generous actions of girls in all branches.

No matter how big or small the change – whether our members are making a difference in their community or around the globe – our Change Maker Awards are here to cheer girls on as they change the world.

The Change Maker Award is by girls, for girls. Girls in all branches are encouraged to nominate each other or themselves.

Nominations for the 2023 Change Maker Award will be open from March 14 to April 14, 2023.

Discover the kind of change maker you are, reflect on changes you’ve made or experienced and find out tips for submitting a nomination with our new Change Maker Award Instant Meeting.
