Nominations due Jan. 19 for Colorado Women’s Day 8TH annual awards
GOLDEN, CO, JAN. 4, 2023: Nominations are due on January 19 for six of the ten categories of awards to be presented at the 8th Annual Colorado Women’s Day conference sponsored by the City of Golden and IX Power Clean Water. Nominations for the students in STEAM awards are due January 26. There is also an ART POSTER CONTEST and entries are due for that on January 31. Nomination applications are available at: ColoradoWomensDay.org.
To be held March 10, 2023 at the Marriott Denver West complex, the Colorado Women’s Day celebration is part of the global celebration of International Women’s Day held every year.
Women are also encouraged to nominate themselves. While women who have been previously recognized with other awards are encouraged to apply, Colorado Women’s Day is particularly seeking out those women who have made impactful contributions in their field or to the community and have gone unrecognized for their work in the past. Nominations for all the awards can come from any member of the public. Any woman residing anywhere within the state of Colorado for at least the last six months can be nominated, and no membership in any club or organization is required. All finalists, along with their organization or business, will be announced in advance of the Colorado Women’s Day event.

2023 will mark the eighth year that International Women’s Day has been celebrated in Colorado with Colorado Women’s Day. In many countries around the world, this is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic, or political. International Women’s Day first emerged at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe, and the first time it was observed nationally in the U.S. was in 1909. The Charter of the United Nations, signed in 1945, was the first international agreement to affirm the principle of equality between women and men. The United Nations’ theme for their women’s initiative is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality.” For more information visit: ColoradoWomensDay.org. -END-
