Elizabeth, NJ.--Nominations are being accepted now until December 1 for the 26 annual Women of Excellence awards. The awards program honors women from all walks of life who have made an exceptional impact on Union County residents.
“By celebrating the achievements of individual women, the Women of Excellence program also highlights organizations that have an enriching impact on the Union County community,” Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen said. “The nomination process is a wonderful way for businesses and non-profits to honor an outstanding owner, manager, employee or volunteer.”
In addition to businesses and non-profits, government agencies and individual residents can also submit nominations for a Women of Excellence award.
Women can be nominated for their achievements in the fields of Arts and Humanities, Business and Entrepreneurial, Community Service, Education, Government, Law, Law Enforcement, Medicine and Health Care, and Women’s Advocacy.
Nominations are open to women 21 years or older who live, volunteer, or work in Union County.
Awardees are guests of honor at the annual Women of Excellence gala awards dinner each spring. Awardees receive an engraved Women of Excellence plaque and a Freeholder Resolution recognizing their impact on the Union County community.
The Women in Excellence awards are sponsored by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Commission of the Status of Women and the Union County Office on Women.
