Nominate an exceptional woman for the ACT Women’s Awards!

Do you know a woman in the ACT or surrounding region who makes an exceptional contribution to her profession, community, or fellow women?
Show your appreciation by nominating a woman you admire for the 2020 ACT Women’s Awards or for inclusion on the ACT Women’s Honour Roll.
Each year, the ACT Women’s Awards celebrate the women amongst us who improve the status and lives of women and girls in the ACT. Previous award winners have made their impact in areas as diverse as construction, science and technology, corporate governance, sports and support for new mothers.

The three categories for nominations are:
• ACT Woman of the Year – all nominees are automatically considered in this category;
• ACT Senior Woman of the Year – nominees 60 years and over; and
• ACT Young Woman of the Year – nominees 16 – 25 years.

The ACT Women’s Honour Roll is a compilation of awards granted to Canberra women since ACT Self Government began in 1988. Every second year, Canberra women who have made significant and lasting contributions to their professional or volunteer field of endeavour are added to the ACT Women’s Honour Roll.
