The nomination period for the annual YMCA-YWCA Women of Distinction Awards has opened.
The awards will be handed out May 7 at the RBC Convention Centre and honour women who have inspired others through their creativity, leadership, compassion and dedication.
“Nominating inspiring women among us for a Women of Distinction Award allows for their stories to be shared with the greater community, and for their successes and triumphs to have the public awareness that is so richly deserved,” said Nancy Chippendale, Women of Distinction steering committee chair.
Awards will be given out in 13 categories. The early bird deadline for nominations is February 14, but nominations will close February 21 at 10:30 p.m.
Nomination forms can be downloaded from the YMCA-YWCA website or picked up at any Y Winnipeg branch.
