Nominate an Outstanding Calvert County Woman or Girl for Commission for Women Awards in Advocacy…Business Leadership…Service…Women of Tomorrow
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.
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 Saturday, December 31, 2016, and commit to attend the March 11, 2017 Women of the World luncheon to receive the award in person. If, in the past, you nominated someone who did not win, consider submitting a stronger application for 2017.
Submit completed Nomination Forms electronically to Calvertwomen@gmail.com or by regular mail to: Calvert County Commission for Women, Attn: Inez Claggett, Chair, PO Box 479, Owings, MD 20736.

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!
The Calvert County Commission for Women is appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to improve opportunities for Calvert women and girls.
