Women's group seeks nominations for awards to women who empower women and girls in their county

The Bluegrass Alliance for Women is seeking nominations for County Impact Awards to one woman in each of the 17 countries in the Bluegrass Area Development District who are empowering women and girls in their communities and who would otherwise go unnoticed. The deadline for nominations is March 7.

Nominators should devote at least one paragraph to each of the four criteria for the award: contributions the nominee is making in advocating and promoting the growth and well-being of women and girls within her county, and how her contributions have impact on the entire county; public and/or professional service activities in which the nominee participates in the county; leadership abilities and evidence of integrity as a role model for women and girls; how the nominee encourages and supports women and girls to explore education and career options.

For a copy of the nomination form, contact Allison Burkholder in Versailles at 859-879-4507 or aburkholder@unitedbankky.com. These awards will be given March 22. The BAW is a volunteer organization that fosters opportunities to improve the lives of women and girls in the Bluegrass and celebrate the success of women who make a difference in their communities. --Stepper Toth
