Our community is full of amazing women. I am surrounded by them here at the Camera, I interact with them daily around town and I meet more of them all the time. Don’t you? Let’s take a moment to appreciate the standout women in our lives and nominate them for a Women Who Light the Community award.

The Boulder Chamber Business Women’s Leadership Group annually honors women who have made significant contributions through innovations and a committed effort to address a meaningful business or community need. Nominees must live, work or have a business/community project in Boulder County, and must have taken a leadership role in contributing to the business community, the arts, education, health care, sports or the environment.

Nominations should identify the need or innovation, describe how the need was addressed by the candidate, describe how the nominee models the behaviors and actions that reflect what we value in our community, and include contact information for the nominee and nominator. E-mail your nomination(s) to events@boulderchamber.com or visit boulderchamber .com for more information.

Winners will be honored at the 19th annual Women Who Light the Community luncheon on Thursday, June 5 at the Lionsgate Events Center in Lafayette.

The Camera is proud to sponsor the event and the awards. We love to give credit where credit is due, and our community is overflowing with award-caliber women. Do your part and submit your nomination(s) by Tuesday, March 25.
