The Commission for Women is extending the deadline for nominations for our four outstanding achievement awards – Advocacy, Business Leadership, Service, and Woman of Tomorrow. The new deadline is Thursday, January 14, 2016.
To start the year off right, why not nominate an outstanding woman or girl for one of these prestigious awards?
Each year, the Calvert County Commission for Women (CCCW) recognizes Calvert County women – and a Woman of Tomorrow age 20 or younger – who are models of outstanding achievement and have made significant contributions to our community. The Commission urges you to nominate a Calvert woman or girl who meets the criteria for these important awards.
The Commission for Women will honor its awardees at the annual Calvert County WOW (Women of the World) Awards Luncheon on Saturday, March 12, 2016, at the College of Southern Maryland. CCCW honorees will also receive individual proclamations highlighting their accomplishments and impact from the Calvert County Board of County Commissioners.
There are four award categories. Typically one person is selected for each category.
Advocacy: For outstanding leadership, courage, tenacity, and effectiveness to support policies and practices that improve the lives of Calvert County women and girls.
Business Leadership: For leadership and effectively implementing business practices that improve the economic status of Calvert County women and girls.
Service: To honor a woman whose service to community has improved the quality of life for Calvert County women and girls.
Woman of Tomorrow: To honor a girl or young woman (age 20 or younger) for effective leadership in the field of advocacy, business, or service to community. Note that the main criterion is impact on our community, not academics.
Criteria for Selection – A nominee must:
- Exemplify the characteristics of awardees described above – outstanding achievements and positive impact;
- Have been a resident of Calvert County for at least five years;
- Attend the WOW (Women of the World) Awards Luncheon in Prince Frederick on March 12, 2016 to receive the award in person; and
