The City of Glendale Commission on the Status of Women invites the community to nominate outstanding women and students to be honored at the Eighth Annual Jewels of Glendale Award Luncheon Thursday, May 10 at the Oakmont Country Club in Glendale.
The Commission on the Status of Women is seeking nominations for the 2012 Jewels of Glendale: Women of Courage Award. The award serves to recognize, honor, and raise the visibility of outstanding Glendale women who have – through strength, courage and persistence – overcome hardship of any sort (physical, financial or emotional) to become strong, positive role models for their community. Nominees must live, work, or study in Glendale. Organizations or individuals may submit up to two nominees; nominations are strongly encouraged from a wide range of fields. Posthumous nominations will be considered.
The Commission is also seeking nominations for the 2012 Gem of Glendale Award. One outstanding high school senior will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship during the Jewels luncheon. The Gem of Glendale Award is a scholarship awarded to one student (male or female) who is engaged in community service that reflects the core values and mission of the Commission on the Status of Women. The community service should include service to women and/or girls in areas such as: homelessness, health, leadership, and financial literacy. Educators and organizations are encouraged to nominate eligible students for this scholarship.
The deadline to submit applications for both the Jewels of Glendale: Women of Courage and the Gem of Glendale Awards is Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 5:30 p.m.
Nomination packets can be found at the City of Glendale website at www.ci.glendale.ca.us/women. Interested parties may also call (818) 548-4844 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
