Outstanding Achievement Awards

The annual YWCA Outstanding Achievement Awards are given to up to five remarkable women in Utah whose lives and achievements exemplify the YWCA’s mission: eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

To nominate an outstanding woman, please complete the following information, attach a resume or vitae and two letters of recommendation. A committee whose members include the 2017 OAA (Outstanding Achievement Award) recipients will select award winners. Nominees will be judged on three criteria: 1) exemplifying the YWCA mission; 2) demonstrated support of other women or girls; and 3) professional achievement.
