BROCKVILLE – A provincial awards program that recognizes girls and women whose volunteerism and leadership makes a difference in their communities is now accepting nominations.
Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark is encouraging schools, organizations and individuals to participate in the 2018 Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities recognition program by submitting a nomination.
“It has been an honour in past years to present these special awards to several deserving women and girls in Leeds-Grenville,” said Clark. “The program gives recipients a well-deserved moment in the spotlight and is our chance to thank them for their efforts. It’s also a great way to use their stories to inspire more women and girls to get involved in their community.”
Nominations to recognize outstanding women and girls for their work to improve the lives of others are being accepted until January 20, 2018. The nominations are submitted to the Minister of the Status of Women by local MPPs.
A nomination package with detailed instructions can be found on MPP Clark’s website here: http://www.steveclarkmpp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Leading_Women_Leading_Girls_18.pdf. The form can also be sent on request by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
All nominations must include two letters of support from community members and be submitted to MPP Clark prior to the January 20, 2018 deadline.
The Leading Women/Leading Girls program was established in 2006 and recognizes women (nominees 18 years of age and older) and girls (nominees under 18) who have “demonstrated exceptional community leadership to improve the lives of others and have made substantial contributions through volunteer work.”
