Women of Wisdom Nomination Deadline is Jan. 15
Omaha - Do you know a local woman 50 years of age (or older) who has done extraordinary work for the community, a church, school, office or neighborhood? Is she providing quiet advocacy on behalf of others or to the benefit of the community? Should she receive community-wide recognition for her contributions?
The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Lifelong Learning Initiative is planning its annual community-wide luncheon to honor three local Women of Wisdom and elevate awareness about aging well.
Submit no more than five paragraphs that identify the nominee and describe her accomplishments. Nominations will be given serious consideration and ultimately, three women will be chosen and honored at the luncheon, planned for this coming spring.
Nomination forms are available at http://lifelonglearning.unomaha.edu or by calling (402) 554-4897.
Nominations are due Jan. 15, 2010.
The following information is required:
• Name, age, address and phone number of the nominee.
• The nominator’s name, address, phone number and relationship to the nominee.
• Information on the nominee’s actions, activities and involvement in the community and its results.
• Reasons why the nominee's work or advocacy was significant and identification of who benefited (individuals or groups).
