Nominations Open to October 31st:
Nominate an influential woman for annual MJBW PRISM Awards
The Business Women of Moose Jaw (BWMJ) continue to look for the next crop of powerful and influential women to be nominated for the prestigious annual PRISM Awards. Nominations are open until October 31st.
Nominations chair, Sharleen Froats says for the upcoming nominees, the BWMJ are looking to elevate and celebrate them even more than before by increasing the awards’ elegance. “We are going to increase the elegance of the event for 2019 with lots of additional things that will help us pamper the nominees and celebrate them. We’re looking forward to those who will be nominated this year.” Please visit the website https://www. businesswomenmoosejaw.com for criteria and to file nominations. “Persons will be able to get all the information about the PRISM Awards 2019, as well as view past awards to get an idea of what happens at the awards, as well as the categories.”
“Nominations are the most critical part of the entire awards process. This really is about recognizing and celebrating women in our community who don’t necessarily receive the recognition they deserve. Taking the time to nominate someone is really what drives the entire event and it is such an important and special thing to do for somebody. We really want to en- courage individuals to do that,” added Froats.
The 6th annual PRISM Awards is scheduled for Saturday, March 2nd, 2019. It is an opportunity to recognize women across the community for their accomplishments and contributions in various work and volunteer environments. The day that these awards are presented is close to International Women’s Day, a global day of celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women, past, present and future.
The PRISM Awards also raise funds to support the Moose Jaw Transition House. Since its inception, the PRISM Awards has raised over $95,000 in support of the Transition House, thanks to BWMJ members and the support of sponsors. The Transition House provides safety to women and children fleeing violence and empowers them to live a life free from violence, as well as shaping confident futures for themselves.
There are seven PRISM awards: Five in categories that recognize certain at- tributes: Perseverance, Role Model, Influential, Successful and Mentor. The other two awards recognize Lifetime Achievement and Youth Achievement.
