Fredericksburg, VA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
Mary Washington Healthcare is accepting nominations for the regional Spirit of Women Awards. The Awards Program honors ordinary women who do extraordinary and selfless things to benefit their communities at large. These individuals represent the unsung heroes of American society in their own unique and special ways.
Mary Washington Healthcare will select three people who perform extraordinary acts of service in their communities as the 2013 Spirit of Women Regional Award recipients in Fredericksburg. All Spirit of Women Award nominees will be recognized on April 26, 2013, 4:00 p.m. at the Mary Washington Healthcare Spirit of Women Awards Celebration to be held at the John F. Fick Conference Center.
Mary Washington Healthcare will select one regional winner in each of three categories:
- Young Person Role Model, 14- 20 years of age
- Community Hero, age 21 and over
- Healthcare Hero, MWHC Clinical Professional
Winners are chosen based on the contributions they have made to issues the community faces in the areas of work, family and health; and on the impact they have had in their community and on the lives of others.
Regional Winners will also be candidates for the National Spirit of Women Awards program. If selected as a National Winner, these women will represent Mary Washington Healthcare at the Spirit of Women National Awards Celebration Breakfast in Las Vegas, Nevada in July. Last year, Mary Washington Healthcare's very own Gail Perkins, RN was selected as the National Spirit of Women Healthcare Hero. (View all of our Regional 2012 winners.)
The deadline for submitting nominations for the Spirit of Women Awards Program is April 19. Visit http://www.spirit.mwhc.com for more information and to nominate a special lady.
