Nominate a distinguished WNY woman now through March 30
Western New York is not lacking women who deserve recognition, and the community at large has an opportunity to appreciate distinguished women through the 2018 Women of Distinction Awards hosted by Girl Scouts of Western New York. Nominations are being accepted now through March 30.
Women of Distinction is an annual dinner fundraising event presented by Girl Scouts of Western New York. This event celebrates outstanding Western New York women who embody the Girl Scout values of courage, confidence and character in their professional and civic lives and, therefore, are role models for today's girls. Honorees come from many different walks of life and align with Girl Scouts' goal of developing strong girls in all sectors of society.
Each year, the Girl Scouts of Western New York call upon the public to help identify these women who exemplify excellence through their professional achievements as well as their volunteerism.
Those selected to be 2018 Women of Distinction will develop a mentoring relationship with a Girl Scout, meeting with her to share insights and advice. The Girl Scout will then present the recipient with her award during a ceremony on Sept. 20.
To qualify, nominees must live or work in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Niagara, Orleans or Wyoming counties. She does not need to have been a Girl Scout, and anyone in the community can nominate someone for a Woman of Distinction Award.
Sponsors help make the 2018 Women of Distinction Awards program possible, and sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information about the Women of Distinction Awards, the award guidelines and nomination form, or sponsorship opportunities, visit www.gswny.org.
