The Indiana Commission for Women (ICW) is now seeking nominations for the 10th Anniversary Torchbearer Awards.
Torchbearers are the State of Indiana’s most prestigious recognition of women in Indiana. They are women who have stepped forward as leaders by breaking down barriers to women’s full participation. These women become lasting legacies for us all by overcoming immense challenges with courage, perseverance and compassion.
Recipients will be selected from a pool of nominated candidates who have overcome obstacles, made extraordinary contributions or been pioneers throughout their lives. Selection will be based on the recipients’ demonstrated achievement in the areas of their professional careers, community leadership and/or public service. Recipients must be living at the time of their nomination. Nominations will be evaluated with attention given to those women who have been pioneers, have removed barriers and/or have made a considerable impact to the advancement of women in Indiana.
Nomination forms must be submitted on or before Friday, January 10, 2014, at 5:00 p.m. EST. All printed copy entries must be received in the ICW offices no later than Friday, January 10, 2014.
