The 30th Woman of the Year will be named in 2017! The Women’s Roundtable was the first organization in the greater Erie area to recognize outstanding women for their contribution and support of other women within the community.
About the Woman of the Year Annual Banquet
The Women’s Roundtable Woman of the Year finalists and their nominators will be introduced at a Community Reception on March 29, 2017 at The Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel.
The finalists will then be honored at the Awards Banquet on May 3, 2017 at the Sheraton Erie Bayfront Hotel. All finalists will receive Certificates of Honor and The Woman of the Year will receive the coveted Diane DeLuca-Thompson Award, a crystal diamond perched on 9” high all-crystal pillars with a black crystal base.
Nominate the Next Woman of the Year
Here are some tips for filling out a winning nomination form:
The information on the form is the only information the judges can consider. You may submit one additional page of material. This rule was devised to simplify the judging process and to make their decision process as fair as possible for all nominees.
Do not assume that the judges know your nominee. Fully explain why you think she should win. Avoid phrases such as “contributions too numerous to mention” or “her many attributes.” Instead, tell exactly what those contributions or attributes are.
Provide correct contact information for both you and the woman you nominate, to include address, phone number and email so that the WOTY chair can contact you. Nominees and their nominator(s) will be called.
Have your nomination in on time. Nominations must be postmarked no later than February 21, 2017.
YOUR NOMINEE MUST BE PRESENT FOR THE COMMUNITY RECEPTION ON MARCH 29, 2017 AND THE AWARDS BANQUET ON MAY 3, 2017. IF SHE CANNOT BE PRESENT, HER NOMINATION WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
