Members of the Prince Albert Council of Women want to know about the inspiring women in your life as they begin accepting nominations for the 2019 Women’s Hall of Fame.
Nominations for the annual award opened earlier this month. Rose Rothenburger, treasurer with the Prince Albert Council of Women said the award recognizes one local woman each year whose work benefits Prince Albert and may also impact the wider community.
“There’s so many women in Prince Albert that do so many things, and a lot of times they just quietly go about doing it,” Rothenburger said. “Sometimes we’re not aware of what women are doing, or what a particular woman is doing, but someone is aware, and that’s the someone we want to pick up a nomination and nominate.”
Nominations will be accepted until Feb. 13 and anyone can nominate a woman for the award. The council of women will look at a woman’s personal achievements, along with their length of service in a volunteer role, workplace accomplishments or examples of demonstrated leadership.
“Someone that does a lot for the community, and it could be the greater community. It doesn’t have to be just someone from Prince Albert as long as it’s someone who has a positive effect on the community,” Rothenburger said.
Rothenburger said it is important to recognize the efforts of local women and show gratitude for their work.
“Also, to inspire other women,” she added. “Maybe other women aren’t aware that there are things that we could be doing to help others.”
The 2019 Women’s Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be held in early March, around the same time as International Women’s Day on March 8.
