Tribute To Women 2017

YWCA Wheeling to Honor Outstanding Women

Do you know a woman who has had a positive impact on the community? Nominate her for the YWCA Wheeling 2017 Tribute to Women Awards. The organization is accepting nominations until Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2017. Nomination forms are available here or at the YWCA building at 1100 Chapline Street, Wheeling.

Awardees will be chosen by the YWCA Tribute to Women Selection Committee and notified by Sept. 1 2017.  The awards will be presented at the Tribute to Women Awards ceremony at 6 pm Monday, October 16th, 2017 at YWCA Wheeling

Past honorees were nominated for their contributions in business, the arts, education, healthcare, religion, community service, sports, science and technology. However, the YWCA Wheeling does not restrict nominations to just these categories. You may nominate a woman for her contributions in any area.

YWCA Wheeling serves the community through a range of programs designed to support its mission of empowering women and eliminating racism. Programs include Family Violence Prevention, Cultural Diversity & Community Outreach, Women’s Boutique, Women Inspired In New Directions (W.I.N.D.) and the Women’s Residence & Homeless Shelter. With more than 25 million members in 122 countries, the YWCA is one of the oldest and largest women’s organization in the world.
