Commission on the Status of Women:
Persons of Vision Awards
January 6, 2005
Each year, through its Person of Vision Award, the Arlington County Commission on the Status of Women recognizes individuals who have contributed substantially to the improvement of the status of women and girls in Arlington. Next spring, the 2005 award winners will be honored by the Commission at the annual Women's History Month Dinner, scheduled for Wednesday, March 16th, at the Clarendon Ballroom, 3185 Wilson Boulevard. I am writing to invite you to nominate individuals whom you feel deserve this honor.
The theme for the 2005 awards is "Women Change America". The award will celebrate and honor women leaders who have made outstanding contributions to our community and have helped to "change America". Candidates may be nominated for exemplary leadership in their field or for serving the interests and needs of women and girls in Arlington.
Please find enclosed a nomination form and a list of selection criteria. In the last several years, the award winners have come from a rich cross-section of the Arlington community and have been involved in almost every endeavor. Please note that nominations should only be made of individuals who live, volunteer, or work in Arlington. Nominations should be submitted to the Commission by
