WCNY accepting nominations for Women Who Make America Awards

WCNY is accepting applications for its Women Who Make America Awards, for women ages 18 and older who make a difference in any of the 19 counties WCNY serves, including Jefferson and Lewis counties.

According to WCNY, the awards represent a collaboration with the AOL and PBS documentary, “Makers: Women Who Make America.”

Nominations are due by Thursday. Nominees will be evaluated on how they affect their own communities in categories such as arts, business, community activism, education, medicine, politics, science and technology, and volunteerism.

Winners will be honored at a March 1 reception at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls.

One nominee will be selected per county. Nomination forms are available online at www.wcny.org/makers.
