The Pilar Hidalgo Lim Troop Achievement Award was conceptualized in the year 2000 to encourage Girl Scout troops to exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law by becoming pro-active in community development.
This is to recognize the important role of the troops in their respective communities and to memorialize the significant role of Pilar Hidalgo Lim in the formal organization of the Girl Scouts of the Philippines (GSP). The Luis H. Lim Memorial Foundation, Inc. has given a lifetime endowment to the GSP by donating Two Million Pesos for the said Troop Achievement Award through the Chairman of the Foundation and GSP Past National President Dr. Estefania Aldaba Lim.
The Pilar Hidalgo Lim Troop Achievement Award aims to encourage community development and ensure that the programs undertaken by the troop are indeed what the community members consider important for their locality.
The troop helps the community members find out what for them are priority needs in their community. They carefully plan, undertake the activities on a yearly basis and continuously monitor and evaluate their project/s to ensure that activities are undertaken as planned.
Twelve outstanding troops will be selected as awardees for their role in community development in whatever area the troop and the community have decided to undertake, e.g. health, environment, cultural heritage, livelihood, food production and others. The Troop will be judged according to its ability to cooperate with one another to ignite the flame of cooperation within the members of the community and to serve as models for community participation within their respective communities. The award will be given for one year work undertaken by the troops within their community.
The Pilar Hidalgo Lim Troop Achievement Award is open to all registered Junior, Senior and Cadet troops that planned, implemented, and sustained a community development project for a period of one (1) year.
The other winners (the remaining 9) shall receive P10,000.00 each.

3. The winning troops may use the awards for any Girl Scout activity, purchase of troop equipment, etc.
