The Remarkable Women Contest Returns in 2021

As we approach International Women’s Month in March, WPRI 12 again will recognize the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative in its second year to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and quality of life.

WPRI 12 will celebrate local women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or month — it’s about what they do, day in and day out.

The Remarkable Women contest entry period ran from Dec. 7 through Dec. 20, 2020. In early 2021, we’ll highlight four local woman who will be considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2021 Woman of the Year Award.
