Thinking of nominating someone for recognition in the McKnight’s Women of Distinction awards? You have less than a week to submit your entry at the early-bird price.

Through Wednesday, Dec. 18, the price per nomination is $69. On or after Thursday, Dec. 19, the price will be $99. The deadline for all entries is Jan. 8.

The awards recognize women working in senior living and skilled nursing in two categories:

  • Hall of Honor candidates should be at the level of vice president (or equivalent) or higher and must have made a significant impact in their organizations.
  • Rising Stars should have less than 15 years of experience in the industry or be no more than 40 years old, and they must have demonstrated an exceptional commitment to the industry.

A lifetime achievement award also will be bestowed.

Nominators should be prepared to share nominees’ work history, exceptional achievements and contributions or service, and anything else that the judging panel should consider. Nominators are encouraged to include as much information as possible within the limits of the entry process to make their entries competitive and help the judges make their determinations.

All selected honorees will be celebrated at an awards event in May in Chicago. Additional details about the event will be announced at a later date.
