How to Nominate a Woman for a Blue Water Woman of the Year Award

If you are here, you are thinking about nominating a very deserving woman for a Blue Water Woman of the Year award. Every year, four or five women from the Blue Water Area are honored at a very special public reception.

Before the awards are given, though, someone must nominate the awesome women in our community.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO NOMINATORS: We ask that all nominators commit to making sure there are 20 people in attendance at the awards reception to help your nominee receive the recognition she deserves. What better way to feel special than to have your own fan club/cheering section sitting in the audience?DSC_0136

Additionally: We request that you check in with someone close to your nominee to make sure she will be available to attend the awards ceremony. This is a “must be present to win” situation.  🙂

Nominating someone is easy. Just fill out the Blue Water Woman of the Year Nomination form found here Blue Water Woman of the Year Awards–nomination form–2019   and send it to:
