Please join Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana as we celebrate the Tough Cookie Awards breakfast on Wednesday, September 28 at The Olmsted in Louisville. Networking starts at 8:00 a.m. Breakfast and awards begin at 8:30 a.m.

For more than 100 years, Girl Scouts has been building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. This event highlights the impact of Girl Scouting on today’s young women and further celebrates a century’s worth of successful leadership development through the Girl Scout movement.

Awards will be announced and presented to four individuals who demonstrate the importance of investing in girls:

  • 2016 Exceptional Cookie Award: Rachael Burch | Presented to an outstanding recent recipient of the Gold Award. Representing the highest achievement in Girl Scouting, the Gold Award challenges high school-age girls to change the world.
  • 2016 Smart Cookie Award: Alli Truttmann | Presented to a young professional Girl Scout alumna who demonstrates courage, confidence, and character through her work, volunteer efforts, and other notable accomplishments.
  • 2016 Tough Cookie Award: Carolyn Tandy | Presented to an ageless woman who has made significant contributions as a volunteer within their community.  She also is a woman whose life exemplifies the value of community service intrinsic to Girl Scouts.
  • 2016 Man Enough To Be a Girl Scout: Steve Trager | Presented to a community leader who not only believes in the power of every girl to change the world, but publicly champions opportunities to make that ideal a reality.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at
