Special to suffredin.org

Annual "Unsung Heroines" Award

SPONSORED BY THE

COOK COUNTY COMMISSION ON WOMEN'S ISSUES

SELECTION PROCESS

In recognition of Women's History Month each year, the Cook County Commission on Women's Issues presents the Unsung Heroine Award to 17 women from across Cook County. The awards ceremony takes place at a breakfast held in March. The selection of these heroines is organized on a district basis to ensure that women from each area of the County are recognized for their contributions to their communities. The members of the Commission on Women's Issues seek community input for the identification of nominees for this award by forming a selection committee. The selection committee from each district is charged with collecting nominations and selecting an awardee.

Recipients of the Unsung Heroine Award must be residents of the County Board district from which they are nominated. They should be women who, either in a professional or volunteer capacity, have made significant contributions to their community for which they have not received widespread recognition. Elected officials are not eligible for consideration.

2012 Award Application Deadline: January 9, 2014.

Nominations for Commissioner Larry Suffredin’s 13th Cook County District should be sent to:
