WILMINGTON, Del. – Governor John Carney, Delaware’s Office of Women’s Advancement & Advocacy, a division of the Delaware Department of Human Resources, and the Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame Committee are now accepting nominations for induction into the 38th Hall of Fame of Delaware Women. An awards reception honoring the 2019 inductees will take place on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at Dover Downs.

“It’s important for us to shine a light on the Delaware women who make positive impacts on their communities every day,” said Governor Carney. “This annual honor is an opportunity to celebrate all of their achievements. We’re looking forward to receiving nominations for the many women who contribute to their schools, neighborhoods, businesses, and more.”

“The Hall of Fame of Delaware women is truly an event that is for the people and by the people. Nominations are open to the public and widely publicized. The women we induct are truly remarkable – they make us proud in every way, not only as Delawareans but as Americans,” said Melanie Ross Levin, Director of the Office of Women’s Advancement & Advocacy.

The Hall of Fame of Delaware Women was first established in 1981 to celebrate the contributions and achievements of Delaware women. More than 145 women have been inducted into the Hall of Fame of Delaware Women.

“There are countless Delaware women whose professional and personal work has left a lasting impression on the First State, and it’s our distinct honor to share their stories and recognize their contributions,” said Kay Keenan, Chair of the Delaware Women’s Hall of Fame Committee. “We’re eager to hear from Delawareans, up and down the state, about women who have positively impacted our community, and I look forward to celebrating their achievements this fall.”

Eligible nominees must have made an important and lasting impact on the lives of Delawareans and been born in Delaware or resided in the State for 10 years. Posthumous nominations are also accepted.

“So many incredible Delaware women deserve recognition for the impactful work they do every day,” said Saundra Ross Johnson, Secretary of the Delaware Department of Human Resources. “We encourage all Delawareans to consider honoring a role model in their lives by submitting a nomination for consideration for this year.”

Nomination forms are available online at de.gov/women until midnight EST on May 15, 2019.
