As the YWCA enters their 28th year recognizing exceptional women in northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia through the YWCA Tribute to Women program. Each year women who have made significant contributions, who nurture, empower, and transform their community, are honored with a nomination and 9 award recipients are recognized at an inspirational banquet in the spring.
Do you know a woman who deserves a tribute? She might sit on your board or volunteer for your organization. She might work at your company, teach your children or even be a leader in your church. She is someone who stands out and leads by example. She is a woman who you undoubtedly admire and maybe even wish there were more of, but she is one-of-a-kind. These are the kind of women to whom we would like to pay tribute. Don’t you want to give her the gift of recognition?
You could be the one to honor a woman who is dedicated to uplifting countless others through a Tribute to Women nomination. Women residing or employed in Sullivan County, Tennessee and Washington County, Virginia are eligible. The nomination process is simple:
Women may be nominated by an organization or business, in one of the following three categories: nurture, empower, and transform.
Complete the nomination application, which is included in this packet, or available online at www.ywcatnva.org/tribute-to-women/
Submit your full nomination to the YWCA no later than Friday, February 15, 2019 at
5:00 p.m. Make sure to include specific details about the nominee, as this is the only information the out-of-state judges will receive for the selection process.
The YWCA Mission is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice,
freedom & dignity for all. If you know a woman who embodies and exemplifies these values, we encourage you to please nominate her!
Start today on providing the gift of recognition for one of the many exceptional women in the Tri-Cities area!
