City Commission on the Status of Women Seeks Nominations For Yearly Awards


Bloomington, Ind. - 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. 24. The awards will be presented during Women's History Month in March 2014.

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 is also 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, at their website or by contacting Sue Owens at owenss@bloomington.in.gov.

Nominations should include the name, address, telephone number and e-mail 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 e-mail address.

The Emerging Leader Award recipient will be honored at the Women's Leadership Development event on Thursday, March 13 at City Hall.

The Woman of the Year and the Lifetime Contribution Award recipients will be honored at the Women's History Month Lunch on Wednesday, March 26, 2014 at the Convention Center.
