The first Jewel of a Woman Event was held in 1992. This annual event first honored Ruby Jewel Codding Hall (for which the event is named) and celebrates successful female role models who have paved the way for today’s girls. Proceeds benefited Girl Scout outreach programs for underserved girls in Sonoma County.

The Gem of a Girl Scholarship recognizes an outstanding graduating Girl Scout Ambassador living in Sonoma, Lake or Mendocino County, who has been active in Girl Scouting and her community. The girl who earns this scholarship is a dedicated Girl Scout, who has shown leadership, service, and commitment to the values of Girl Scouting in all areas of her life. We were thrilled to honor two Gems this year!
