Nominate a Zonta Woman of the Year by Feb. 11

We are truly blessed in this area to have so many volunteers who share their time and resources to enhance our quality of life.

Every year since 1974, the Zonta Club of the Mid-Ohio Valley has recognized one of these community champions by presenting the Woman of the Year Award to an outstanding Washington County resident who has dedicated years of volunteer service to the community.

Past Women of the Year have included Agnes Blazier, our first in 1974, to Karen Waller in 2018. These 45 women have worked tirelessly to promote access to health and educational opportunities, protect children and women from abuse, provide medical services to those in need, improve our environment, alleviate hunger and homelessness and much, much more.

This year’s award will be presented at the Annual Dinner of the Marietta Area Chamber of Commerce on March 11. We encourage your organization to nominate an exceptional woman volunteer for this award. The award is based on information about a woman’s volunteer service in the community, regardless of any employment history.

Your nomination must include a comprehensive accounting of her volunteer activities, including time spans, organization(s), duties, awards, accomplishments and impact on the community. It should include letters from as many people as possible who know of her volunteer activities. It must include biographical information on the nominee and the name, address and telephone number and email address of the person submitting the nomination.
