Every woman is remarkable with her unique set of experiences, passions and abilities. The capabilities of women are remarkable and limitless. After all, it is women who hold up the sky! Within our sisterhood circles, we all know a woman who inspires us or touches our community in immeasurable ways – a woman who shines. It could be your mom, sister, friend, coworker, mentor, or any woman you know who is making a difference.
Yahoo! Shine is celebrating these extraordinary women all over the country with a new women’s recognition program, Women Who Shine, and is asking you to nominate the women who have had an impact on your life. From activists to entrepreneurs, mothers, teachers, public servants, athletes and survivors, there are countless ways women influence and inspire those around them.
Here’s all you you need to do: Nominate the inspiring women in your life at http://womenwhoshine.yahoo.com. Nominating is simple – just submit a description of what makes the woman you are nominating a “woman who shines” (in 250 words or less) and upload a photo to display in the gallery of nominees. They will have the chance to be nationally recognized for their accomplishments and be entered to win a $10,000 grand prize.
Selected nominees will be showcased on the Women Who Shine page, and readers will have the ability to share individual profiles that inspire them through social media, and encourage others to vote for their favorite candidates. The grand prize winner will receive a $10,000 cash prize and be featured on Shine.
