Businesswomen, educators, legislators, homemakers, activists and others who made outstanding contributions to the state and continue to inspire present-day Georgians through their legacy can be nominated for Georgia Women of Achievement recognition.

Three women who have been dead for more than 10 years will be inducted into the Georgia Women of Achievement Hall of Fame in March 2015. They will join 81 other Georgia Women of Achievement who have been recognized since 1992 when the program was founded to honor women’s contribution to Georgia’s history.

The deadline for nomination is June 30. Nominations received after this date will be considered for the 2016 Induction Ceremony.

Nominees must be Georgia natives or clearly identified with the state and must have made exceptional and enduring contributions in their field of endeavor that inspire future generations. Nominations will be reviewed by a Board of Selections consisting of scholars and experts from throughout the state.
