The window to nominate area residents for the annual Women of Distinction Awards is now open.  Since 1991, the YWCA of Alton has given special recognition to a number of women that are deemed worthy of the honor by a panel of judges charged with narrowing down what is usually an overflow number of applicants.  202 women have been honored since the program began.

YWCA Executive Director Andrea Lamer describes what they are looking for in a nominee.

Lamer comments

Nominations are due by February 8.  The winners will be announced this spring and will appear on Z-1570's Let's Talk prior to their luncheon at the Commons at Lewis & Clark Community College on May 21.  Nominating forms are available through the YWCA.  Call 465-7774, or click here:
