Bloomington Looking For Nominees For Woman of The Year

Last updated on Thursday, January 17, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington Commission on the Status of Women is seeking nominees for the Woman of the Year, Emerging Leader and Lifetime Contribution awards.

The deadline for submission of nominations is Jan. 25. The awards will be presented during Women's History Month in March.

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 outside normal job responsibilities. The recipient will have served as a positive role model for girls and women and will have made outstanding contributions to the community.

The Lifetime Contribution Award recognizes a woman whose work has significantly advanced the status of women through her many years of leadership and service. The Emerging Leader Award acknowledges a woman with a shorter (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. Nominations should include the name, address, telephone number and email address of the nominee in addition to the reasons why the nominee merits the award. The nominator also should include his or her name, address, telephone number and email address.

The Emerging Leader Award recipient will be honored at the leadership development event on March 5 at City Hall. The Woman of the Year Award and the Lifetime Contribution Award recipients will be honored at the Women's History Month Lunch on March 27 at the Bloomington/Monroe County Convention Center.
