This program celebrates the achievements of local women, including young women, through a biennial award. Sadly, the restrictions of COVID19 during 2020 prevented us from holding these awards. We look forward to reinstating this award in 2022.
There are three categories of awards; Visionary Leader, Community Worker/Volunteer and Mentor (Wise Woman). The Young Women of Achievement Awards are for 12 - 25 year olds in the same three categories. The Visionary Leader categories are for women who have been a major voice in the community, providing leadership to design/implement community improvements. Community Work/Volunteer is for women who volunteer for more than one activity, who are reliable and get the job done. The Mentor category is for women who have mentored other women over a number of years.
