Remarkable Women 2023 is now over. Thank you for your support!
FOX8’s winner of the 2023 Remarkable Women of the Piedmont Triad contest is Dr. Irish Spencer.
Dr. Spencer joined us on FOX8 on March 31 to discuss the work that earned her this recognition and the opportunity to move forward to the next stage of Nexstar’s Remarkable Women contest.
Remarkable Women is our way of recognizing the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. 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.
Nominations were open from Nov. 13 through Dec. 17, 2022. We look for local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. Nominees should exemplify community contribution, self-achievement and innovation, creativity and/or entrepreneurial spirit. Entries must include a short, original essay of 500 words or less about your nominee. Only one entry is allowed per person.
FOX8’s panel of judges review eligible entry essays. Four Triad women are selected as finalists and profiled during the FOX8 6 p.m. news.
One of the four finalists is named Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year and wins a $1,000 donation to a charity of her choice!
The Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year advances to the semi-finalist regional round. One of seven regional winners is ultimately selected as Nexstar’s Remarkable Woman of 2023.
