Looking for distinctive women

The Duluth YWCA is looking for nominations for this year’s Women of Distinction Awards. Three awards will be given, and an “Emerging Leader” younger than 35 will also be selected by the Board of Directors.

“This year, we celebrate a decade of honoring women leaders in our community,” said Ellen O’Neill, YWCA Duluth executive director. “We are so proud of these ‘Women of Distinction’ who have served — and continue to serve — our community in brave and amazing ways.”

O’Neill encourages businesses, individuals, organizations, faith communities, schools and others to nominate women who are deserving of recognition.

This year is also the YWCA’s 120th anniversary. Find more information about the organization’s history, its activities, and its milestones at ywcaduluth.org.

Nomination forms for the awards are available at the same website, and the deadline for nominations is 5 p.m. Wednesday.
