Inspiring Women in Huron Awards 

Do you know a woman who has improved the lives of other women and children by being a role model and advocate using their talents, vision and determination to make our community a better place?

The YMCA, in partnership with the Huron Women’s Shelter is accepting nominations for the 4th annual Inspiring Women in Huron Award.  The award recognizes women who have demonstrated a contribution to improving the lives of others in one or more of the following areas: arts and culture, community, diversity, education, business/professional leadership, global action, health and welfare, leadership, philanthropy, social justice, sport, volunteerism, or women's rights. Nominees are in the age categories of 16-29 years and 30 + years.  Last year, Inspiring Women in Huron recognized the contributions of 24 women from across Huron County at a celebration dinner held in Goderich.


Nominations are now closed for 2017, however please join us for the awards dinner and help us celebrate 15 women and young women nominees from Huron County:
