Thank you for your nominations for our Remarkable Women contest! We’re currently going through them to select four finalists as we approach International Women’s Month in March.

WAVY-TV and WVBT-TV look forward to 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.

WAVY and WVBT-TV will celebrate local women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

In February, we’ll highlight four local women who will be considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2020 Woman of the Year Award.
