The search is on for nominees for the 26th annual Muskingum Family Y Women of Achievement Awards.

If you know a phenomenal woman who works or lives in Muskingum County and would like to have them recognized you must send in a nomination form to the selection committee. Organizers are looking for women who possess leadership and service to others.

"There is criteria that the selection committee works off of. There are things that come into play, one is obviously being a role model, what kind of service they have provided, how they impacted the community, being a mentor to women, men, children, people of all walks and ages, " said Muskingum Family Y Executive Director, Craig Miracle.

Nominations must be sent in by February 17th in order for the committee to continue planning the evening. This year the banquet will be held Wednesday, April 16th and seven women will be awarded. Miracle says guests are in for a good time.

"We always like to say it;s the premiere women recognition event in the community. It’s a wonderful evening, a wonderful dinner. We have a room full of people approximately 300 people in attendance and we just recognize our past recipients each year because this is their event," said Miracle.
