Deadline to nominate outstanding UW women extended

The deadline for nominating an outstanding woman for the annual “Celebrating UW Women” has been extended to Friday, March 5.

Celebrating UW Women, in its sixth year, is a program that gives the UW community the opportunity to recognize the contributions of outstanding female students, staff and faculty members. Nominations come from all parts of our campus community, and many levels of contribution are worthy of recognition— from the very personal to the global.

The Celebrating UW Women display and reception are held in March as part of Women’s History Month. This year’s display, recognizing all women nominated, will be in the HUB Art Gallery from March 15 until April 2. A reception honoring the nominees will be held Wednesday, March 17 in the gallery.

To submit a nomination, send contact information (including name, address, phone number and e-mail address) for you and the nominee, and a short essay (no more than 250 words) describing the nominee’s contributions to the UW community, to ericab4@u.washington.edu.
