2013 Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame

 

The Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland are seeking recommendations of outstanding Maryland women for induction into the 2013 Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. The Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame was established through the efforts of the Maryland Commission for Women and the Women Legislators of Maryland in 1985. Its purpose is to honor Maryland women who have made unique and lasting contributions to the economic, political, cultural and social life of the state, and to provide role models of achievement for tomorrow’s female leaders.

Historical and contemporary women are inducted each year. Among those honored are past legislators, political and social activists, scientists, educators, writers and spiritual and community leaders. They represent the women who have helped shape Maryland, the United States and the world. Their induction into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame enhances the visibility of their contributions to their work, communities, and the status of women.

Maryland continues to flourish because of its strong women leaders and their unceasing strides to improve the quality of life in our state. The Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame gives us the opportunity to honor these remarkable women. We invite organizations and individuals to take the time to nominate deserving women who have made a difference in the lives of those they serve. An independent committee representing a cross section of citizens of the state will review the nominations and make the final recommendations. The Governor will honor these individuals in a special ceremony in March of 2013.

The selection process, application and criteria for nominees are located on the web at http://dhr.maryland.gov/mcw/mwhf.php

All nominations must be postmarked or emailed no later than Friday, October 26, 2012.  Applications can be mailed to: Maryland Commission for Women, 311 W. Saratoga Street, Suite 272, Baltimore, MD 2120, or emailed to: cyoung2@maryland.gov. Please direct any questions to the Commission’s office at 410-767-3049.
