TAMPA — Two nonprofit organizations are seeking nominations of female community leaders for recognition. The University of South Florida Women in Leadership & Philanthropy (WLP) organization is accepting nominations for the 2013 WLP Community Leadership Award. This award is to honor a visionary leader and philanthropist doing extraordinary things to make Tampa Bay a better place for women to live and to work. Kathleen Moore, associate vice president for system initiatives at USF and chair for the WLP program, said the award is designed to reward ongoing achievement and to create the incentive for greater success in the future. The nominees and recipient will be recognized at the organization’s symposium Oct. 24.
Nomination forms must be submitted by Aug. 19. To nominate, visit http://usfweb3.usf.edu/ua-wlp/leadershipaward.aspx. For information, contact the USF WLP office at (813) 974-4070. The nominees and recipient will be recognized at the organization’s symposium Oct. 24. The Girl Scouts of West Central Florida is seeking nominations for the Women of Distinction award and the Woman of Promise Award, which recognizes a deserving woman under the age of 35. Those selected as honorees are women who have achieved success in their chosen fields and whose accomplishments make them positive role models who inspire girls to achieve their own goals and dreams. They “exemplify the Girl Scout Promise and Law through ethical leadership and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of others through community service.” To be considered, Women of Distinction and Woman of Promise nominees must live within Girl Scouts of West Central Florida’s geographic boundaries (Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties). Women are not required to have been or currently be a Girl Scout to be nominated. The 2014 Women of Distinction and the Woman of Promise will be honored at the 13th annual Women of Distinction luncheon on March 18, 2014, at A La Carte Event Pavilion. The luncheon benefits nearly 21,000 girls served by Girl Scouts of West Central Florida. Nominations will be accepted through Sept. 11; forms are online at www.gswcf.org/wod. Tribune staff report
