 Nominate a Woman of Excellence

Is there an elected woman who inspires you?

Nominate her to receive NFWL’s Women of Excellence Award. The Elected Women of Excellence Award was created to identify women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities. Up to one Republican and one Democrat from each state can be selected as a winner.

Each winner will receive a travel scholarship to attend the 2017 Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota November 14-18.

The Office Depot Foundation Backpack program brings NFWL women together with the children in their communities, and NFWL could not be more excited to help sponsor this program!
