FOX8`s Remarkable Women of the Triad special

Who will be the Piedmont Triad’s Remarkable Woman of the Year for 2023?

FOX8 wants to recognize 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 are open from Nov. 13 through Dec. 17, 2022. We are looking 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 will review eligible entry essays. Four Triad women will be selected as finalists and profiled during the FOX8 6 p.m. news.

One of the four finalists will be named Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year and win a $1,000 donation to a charity of her choice!

The Piedmont Triad’s Woman of the Year will advance to the semi-finalist regional round. One of seven regional winners will be selected as Nexstar’s Remarkable Woman of 2023.
