Awards honour outstanding women

The Boundary Women's Coalition is seeking nominations for Outstanding Women of the Boundary awards.

Submitted by Boundary Women’s Coalition

Since 2007, Boundary Women’s Coalition has hosted the Outstanding Women of the Boundary Awards on March 8, International Women’s Day. This year we have decided to make a change and present the awards in October. Since 1992, October has been dedicated Women’s HerStory Month because it is the month in which Canadian women became “persons” under the law.

Another change this year is the addition of a new category – Woman of Distinction. A woman nominated in this category would be a Boundary Area woman who has inspired others by her way of being in the world.

Boundary Women’s Coalition values the contributions women make to our lives and is pleased to provide an opportunity for the community to celebrate women’s accomplishments. The Coalition does not select the recipients; anyone can make a nomination and all women nominated are acknowledged at the event. A nomination package can be requested by email to bwrc@ telus.net or by phone to 250- 442-5212 or in person at Boundary Women’s Resource Centre, 268 Market Avenue, Grand Forks.

The nomination package details the categories, process, etc. Nomination forms must be returned to the Resource Centre by midnight, October 3, 2014.

This year, the Outstanding Women of the Boundary Awards event will be held on Friday, October 24th at the Seniors’ Hall, City Park, Grand Forks.

We all know women who—by their actions, by the way they live their lives —make the Boundary Community a better place in which to live.

They are more today than they were yesterday, they have made a significant impression and they inspire the rest of us.

Celebrate the special woman in your life with a nomination.
