(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington Commission on the Status of Women will continue accepting nominations for its annual awards through January 19, 2018.

The awards include the 2018 Woman of the Year Award, the Toby Strout Lifetime Contribution Award and the Emerging Leader Award. Recipients will be recognized in March 2018 during Women's History Month.

The 2018 Woman of the Year Award recognizes 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. In addition, the recipient serves as a positive role model for girls and women while making outstanding contributions to the community.

Named for the former director of Middle Way House and former commissioner of the Bloomington Commission on the Status of Women, the Toby Strout 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 fewer than five years of significant achievements and recognizes the potential for future contributions to the community.

The Emerging Leader award recipient will be honored at the Women's Leadership Development event on Thursday, March 8, at City Hall. The Woman of the Year Award and Toby Strout Lifetime Contribution Award recipients will be honored at the Women's History Month Lunch on Wednesday, March 21, at the Monroe Convention Center.

Nomination forms are available online or at City Hall in the Community and Family Resources Department (401 N. Morton, Suite 260).
