Deadline approaches for International Women’s Day nominations and entries

Deadline for Nominations and Entries: Saturday 9th January

Southern Brooks Community Partnership (SBCP) would like to remind readers of an important deadline in connection with their International Women’s Day event, which takes place in March.

International Womens Day 2009

Winsome Barrett-Muir of SBCP writes:

“Every year International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world to acknowledge and show appreciation for women and their role in society. In Bradley Stoke we have celebrated International Women’s day for the past six years. Last year we added the Outstanding Women’s Awards (OWAs) to the celebration. It’s a way to raise the profile of the many ways local women have contributed to the areas they live in. In a new town like Bradley Stoke this has helped tremendously in bringing people together to create a vibrant community. The award was created to acknowledge and celebrate these contributions.”

“This year we’re again running the OWAs and have added a poetry and photography competition to the event. For this anyone can take part, the theme is ‘A woman you know’ . Just write a poem or take a photograph of a woman who has had a positive influence on your life.”

“Last year three of the awards were won by residents of Bradley Stoke: the community award, the mentor award and the personal achievement award. All who were nominated felt appreciated and enjoyed the event . The deadline is fast approaching (Saturday 9th January) and we have some fantastic prizes for the winners, all we need are the nominations and the poems/photographs.”

Nomination and entry forms can be downloaded from Southern Brooks Community Partnership website or collected from local libraries.

Completed forms can be handed in at local libraries or posted to SBCP.

Why not take a few minutes to write a nomination and show someone you acknowledge their contributions?
