The award will be presented at  the Best Western PLUS Mariposa Inn & Conference Centre on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 hosted by the Orillia Business Women’s Association (OBWA). The OBWA is very excited to announce that Carey Moran from Pure Country 106  will  emcee the awards dinner once again this year. So, you can be guaranteed it will be another fun night. At the awards Gala, the OBWA will also present an award to the recipient of the Young Woman of the Year chosen from the three high schools in Orillia.

Nominees for the “Nelle Carter Woman of the Year”  (Women of Distinction) may be from any of the following areas: City of Orillia, Township of Ramara, Township Of Oro-Medonte, Township of Severn and The Chippewas Of Rama First Nation.

The award is named for the late Nelle Carter who was an inspiration to women in our area. She was president of the family business, president of the Orillia Quota Club, the first woman elected to Orillia Council as Alderman and she was active in St. Paul’s United Church. The recipient of the award represents Nelle Carter’s high standards and values.

This is an opportunity to nominate a woman who, in your opinion, meets this criteria in both her business/volunteer and personal life, achieves excellence in her place of work, has the ability to strive for higher goals, works as a volunteer to improve the lives of individuals in her community or contributes to society in her own way, demonstrates leadership in ideas and new initiatives, or has done something in particular with respect to any of the aforementioned activities which would make her a “Woman of Distinction”.
