Outstanding Women of Burlington County Awards
Each year the Burlington County Women’s Advisory Council and the Burlington County Board of County Commissioners host an Awards Reception honoring women who have made a difference in the Burlington County community. The Council annually honors women who have made significant contributions as well as demonstrated their support of other women. They may have acted as mentors, role models, or advocates for other women.
To be eligible for an award, nominees must have lived or worked in Burlington County for at least one year. The winners will be chosen from several areas of exceptional service. This year, nominees will be recognized in the following categories: Mentorship, Volunteerism, Law, Education, Community Service, Corporate Leadership, Diversity/Inclusion, Healthcare, First Responder, Government and Frontline Worker (Essential worker such as: grocery store, warehouse, etc.)
The Council is also presenting scholarships to three outstanding 12th grade female students from Burlington County. The scholarships will include the Alice Paul Champion Award, the Celeste Arties Memorial Award and the Elizabeth Coleman White STEM Award. The Council is pleased to be awarding three Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to each award recipient.
