(WGHP) — Do you know a woman who has made an impact in the community?

We are currently seeking nominations for our Remarkable Women of the Piedmont Triad contest.

We are looking for local women who have inspiring stories and who exemplify community contribution and self-achievement. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life. It’s our way of recognizing the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities.

FOX8’s panel of judges will review eligible entries, and four Piedmont Triad women will be selected as finalists. One of the four finalists will be named Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year and will win a $1,000 donation to a charity of her choice!

The winner of the Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year will then be considered for recognition as one of seven regional Women of the Year. Finally, one woman will be selected as Nexstar’s Remarkable Woman of 2024.

Nominations for Remarkable Women of the Piedmont Triad 2024 are open from Nov. 1 through Dec. 1, 2023. Only one entry is allowed per person.
