(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington Commission on the Status of Women would like to remind residents that the deadline for submitting nominations for the Woman of the Year, Emerging Leader and Lifetime Contribution Awards is January 27, 2012.
The awards will be presented during Women's History Month in March 2012.
The Woman of the Year Award is presented to a woman who has improved the quality of life for other women through inspiration, community service or professional accomplishments above and/or outside normal job responsibilities.
The recipient also is someone who serves as a positive role model for girls and women and has made outstanding contributions to the community.
The Lifetime Contribution Award recognizes a woman whose work has significantly advanced the status of women through leadership and service.
The Emerging Leader Award acknowledges a woman with a relatively short (less than five years) history of significant achievements and recognizes the potential for future contributions.
Nomination forms are available in the City of Bloomington's Community and Family Resources Department, Suite 260 and online at: www.bloomington.in.gov/csw or contact Sue Owens at email@example.com.
