2019 Woman of the Year and Tomorrow’s Woman Awards

The St. Mary’s County Commission for Women is now accepting nominations for Woman of the Year and Tomorrow’s Woman. The awards recognize women who have made significant contributions to the local region through their volunteer service. Nominees will be recognized at the Women’s History Month Banquet on Thursday, March 14, at Southern Maryland Higher Education Center.

The Woman of the Year award recipient will be a woman who displays leadership, commitment, and provides outstanding volunteer service to individuals or nonprofit organizations in the community. Previous nominees have included volunteers from local churches, libraries, senior activity centers, hospitals, animal shelters, the NAACP, and volunteer rescue squads.

Tomorrow’s Woman celebrates young women who are already making a difference in St. Mary’s County. The award recipient will be a current high school student, in grades 9-12, who has made a remarkable impact to the community through voluntary advocacy, leadership, or service. Individuals, families, charities, educators, civic and community organizations, and religious organizations are encouraged to recognize the work of the next generation by nominating a deserving candidate.

To be eligible, nominations in both categories must recognize women who currently reside in St. Mary’s County and who have made a positive impact on the local community through volunteer work. Completed nominations forms must be submitted by Friday, Feb. 1.

The St. Mary’s County Commission for Women is a volunteer-run committee appointed by the Commissioners of St. Mary’s County. Its mission is to celebrate and support the County’s women through outreach, advocacy and service, to secure an equitable community for all.
