One of the most rewarding aspects of chairing the Commission for Women is honoring Calvert County women and girls who exemplify the best of the best.  Each year the Commission solicits nominations of women who excel in three areas – advocacy, business leadership, and service.

The Commission also honors a “Woman of Tomorrow” – a girl or young woman under age 20 who is already making a difference through her advocacy, leadership, or service.  The main criterion for “Woman of Tomorrow” is impact on our community, not academic excellence.

Please help us by nominating an exceptional woman or girl whom you know through your community or workplace, from your place of worship, or through school or community activities.

Simply download the short Nomination Form from the Commission’s website –  (A Nomination Form is also attached to this email.)  The awards criteria are straightforward.  Winners must have made a positive impact on our community, have been a Calvert County resident for at least five years, have a completed Nomination Form submitted by December 31, 2015, and commit to attend the March 12, 2016 Women of the World luncheon to receive the award in person.  The theme for the 2016 WOW luncheon is Building Bridges to the Future.  If, in the past, you nominated someone who did not win, consider submitting a stronger application for 2016.

Submit completed Nomination Forms electronically to or by regular mail to: Calvert County Commission for Women, Attn: Awards Committee, 175 Main Street, Prince Frederick, MD 20678.

Please share this request and the Nomination Form with your friends and family, neighbors, coworkers, faith community, and social networks.  Knowing how many talented and effective women and girls there are in Calvert County, we look forward to receiving many nominations for our four Commission for Women awards – Advocacy, Business Leadership, Service, and Woman of Tomorrow!
