The Indiana Commission for Women has extended the deadline for its annual Torchbearer Awards to Dec. 21.
Indiana Torchbearers are those women who have stepped forward as leaders by breaking down barriers to women's full participation. Recipients will be selected from a pool of nominated candidates who have "overcome obstacles, made extraordinary contributions to Indiana or to their communities or been pioneers throughout their lives," the commission said.
Nominations may be submitted by email. Visit www.in.gov/icw/2334.htm to download the nomination form and guidelines. Submitted nomination forms are due by 5 p.m. Dec. 21.
Recipients of the 2013 Torchbearer Awards will be announced at a ceremony on March 6.
For more information or a printed copy of nomination form, contact the group's executive director, Kristin Garvey, at 317-232-6720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
