This year’s Outstanding Women of New Hampshire Awards will be presented at an event on Monday, March 30, 2009.

The national theme for the 2009 National Women’s History Month is Women Taking the Lead to Save our Planet.

  • Support for the goals and interests of women in the community
  • Role model/mentor for others
  • Organizer of campus or community events
  • Voicing women’s concerns on campus or in the community
  • Working to expand the vision of equality for women

Awards are given to women in four categories: an outstanding KSC student, a member of the KSC faculty or staff (excluding current commission members), a woman from the Monadnock region, and an individual whose contributions have made a difference at the state level.
