Nominations are currently being accepted for outstanding women to be recognized at the 2014 Women’s Day Celebration presented by Delaware Technical Community College and the Jack F. Owens Campus Alumni Association in Georgetown. The closing date for nominations is Friday, May 31.

The Women’s Day Celebration, held annually the first Wednesday in March, recognizes the significant accomplishments of dedicated women and their positive impact on Delaware and the communities in which they live. Since the inception of the event in 1995, 47 women from around the state have been recognized. The 2013 honorees are Henrietta Belcher-Stack, Leanne Phillips-Lowe and Barbara S. Ridgely.

To be eligible for nomination, a woman must be age 18 or older and either a resident of Sussex County or the state of Delaware for at least five years or a non-Delaware resident whose employment or volunteer work impacted Delawareans for at least five years.

Honorees are selected based on their professional or career achievements, leadership and vision, service to the community, impact on Sussex County and/or the state of Delaware, and personal and/or professional obstacles overcome. Eligible candidates should demonstrate exemplary accomplishments related to one or more of these areas: arts, business, community service, education, law, medicine and public service.
