Although the P.R.A.Y. awards are strictly for Protestant and Independent Christian Churches, this data can serve as a barometer for councils indicating how well they are doing in connecting with the faith community.

Religious Recognitions can serve as the linchpin connecting Girl Scouting with the faith communities. These statistics will help your Council set goals for increasing the number of girls earning the Religious Recognition of their faith. Find data on the current year, see which councils made the honor roll, and look at your council’s five-year history. Click on the column headings to sort the data in different ways.

  • Update advancement records
