Do you know an exceptional woman in the Tri-Cities? If so, why not nominate her for the YWCA's 2014 Tribute to Women awards?

     The awards program is in its 23rd year recognizing women who show significant growth in her area of expertise. Women may be nominated in one of four categories: arts, business or professional, education, and community service.

     Judges from outside the area will select three winners in each category, to be honored at an awards banquet in April.

Nominations can be submitted online at or mailed to YWCA Bristol at 106 State Street, Bristol, TN 37620 by Feb. 15, 2014.

Forms are also available at the YWCA front desk.

The awards banquet will be held on Thursday, April 24 at 6 p.m. at the Bristol, Va. Holiday Inn. For more information, please contact Sidney Burns at or call 423.968.9444.
