Torchbearer Awards Nomination Procedure
Sponsored and hosted by the ICW Commissioners, the Torchbearer Award Ceremony is the only program in which the State of Indiana recognizes and honors her finest natural resource—the women of Indiana. Indiana Torchbearers are those women who have stepped forward in all areas of society to carry the light for women. They have led the way for others by breaking down barriers to women’s full participation and have become true beacons of light by overcoming challenges that all women face with courage, perseverance and compassion and by creating lasting legacies that serve as an inspiration for all.
