To be eligible for the award, nominees must have lived or worked in Burlington County for at least one year. The deadline for nominating an outstanding woman is Friday, Dec. 6.

“This is a great way for the county to recognize the women in our area that excel in their fields and serve the community,” Burlington County Freeholder Deputy Director Leah Arter said. “Over the years, we have honored many truly outstanding women and I look forward to seeing who is nominated this year.”

Nominees could be recognized in many different categories such as: education; government, public service or volunteerism; journalism, arts or entertainment; law, business or entrepreneur; medicine or health service and social service.

The council is looking for women who have made significant contributions in their chosen field, as well as having demonstrated their support of women in the community.
