Nominations are now open for this years YWCA Thompson Woman of Distinction Awards. The annual event recognizes women in our community (any women north of the 53rd parallel) who go above and beyond to lead, be a role model or just make the community a better place to live, work and play.
Nina Cordell, the programs coordinator at the Thompson YWCA told CHTM that the awards are a chance to honour the achievements of women in the community, regardless of education or work experience. The only requirements to be up for the award is to consent to the nomination (as well as the publicity that comes with it) as well as be available to attend the awards dinner.
Cordell said that nomination packages are available online (www.ywcathompson.com), via email (email@example.com), by dropping by the YWCA Thompson reception desk (39 Nickel Road) or by calling Nina (204-778-1209).
The full eligibility list and addition information are available for review on the application.
The nominations are due by Monday April 3rd, while the awards dinner is on May 27th at the River Lodge place.
