Who Will Be Next Women of Achievement?

October 25, 2018

The New Jersey Women of Achievement Awards began as a program jointly sponsored by Douglass College and the New Jersey State Federation of Women’s Clubs of GFWC.  Awards are conferred upon women in recognition of outstanding accomplishments and distinguished service in their fields.

The first awards were presented in 1982 at a special program recognizing women for their accomplishments.  It has become a continuing program with annual awards.  Since 2007, Women of Achievement Awards have been presented at the NJSFWC Annual Convention each May following the Monday night banquet.

To be eligible, a nominee must be a woman residing in New Jersey who has gained visibility for her contributions. Recipients are selected by a committee of clubwomen, Douglass College and Associate Alumnae of Douglass College representatives. 

Nominations will be accepted from clubs, individuals or organizations.  Forms can be found on the njsfwc.org website under Projects and must be sent, along with supporting materials, no later than November 15, 2018.
