In recognition of Women’s History Month, Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson announced that nominations are now being accepted for the 2021 Women of Distinction Awards Program. Residents are encouraged to nominate extraordinary women who have made a difference in their communities.
“The Women of Distinction Program was created to recognize extraordinary women who go above and beyond to improve the lives of those around them and our community,” said Councilwoman Johnson, who serves as Chairwoman of the Women of Distinction Committee. “If you know a special woman who helps make our community a better place to live, we invite you to nominate her to be a 2021 Town of Oyster Bay Woman of Distinction.”
Supervisor Saladino added, “We are proud to recognize extraordinary women in our Town and invite residents to submit nominations of those who make a difference and enrich the lives of others. We look forward to sharing their stories and recognizing their efforts to make our community, families and Town a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
Those nominated as Women of Distinction will be recognized at a special awards ceremony hosted by the Town Board in May. Nominations may be submitted for any achievement or honorable cause performed by the nominee. The Town seeks to recognize individuals for their contributions to the arts, education, environment, athletics, community or civic service, volunteerism or business. Honorees must live or work in the Town of Oyster Bay.
