The YWCA Darien/Norwalk is hosting the 10th Annual Women of Distinction Awards. The YWCA is seeking nominations for women who epitomize leadership and have used their skills to make our community a better place to live. They have just extended the deadline for nominations to Friday, March 6.

After nominations are received, the Women of Distinction Nominations Committee will review the submissions and select the honorees. The honorees will represent leadership in varied service and business fields throughout our community. The YWCA will also identify a Young Woman of Distinction and award it to a woman who is under 21 years of age. The Young Woman of Distinction will receive a $1,000 scholarship.

The women chosen will be honored at the Women of Distinction Awards Luncheon Thursday, May 7 at The Country Club of Darien.
