LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The President’s Commission on the Status of Women at Eastern Oregon University has extended the nomination deadline for the 2012 Women of Vision and Courage Awards to 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 1.
One recipient from each of the following three categories will be recognized: Northeastern Oregon residents; EOU faculty and staff; and EOU students.
The PCSW requests three letters of nomination to be submitted for each nominee. Letters should explain why the individual is deserving of an award, and at a minimum, also include the following information: nominator’s relationship with the nominee and how long they have known her; length of time the nominee has demonstrated vision and courage and acted as an agent of change; examples of how the nominee has shown leadership in creating a more inclusive, equitable community, especially in promoting the rights of women and girls.
For each letter, nominators should include their name and address (city/state/zip) and a phone number and/or e-mail address where they may be contacted. Nominations packets need not be overly elaborate or lengthy. Three letters of recommendation are sufficient, along with any supporting materials that demonstrate why the nominator believes the nominee is worthy of an award.
Letters should be addressed to:
