Gov. 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 accepting nominations for induction into the 38th Hall of Fame of Delaware Women.

An awards reception to honor the 2018 inductees will take place Sept. 27 at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino, 1131 N. Dupont Highway.

“Delaware women contribute significantly to our communities, our workforce, and our culture across the state,” said Carney. “We look forward to receiving a diverse group of nominees who have made lasting impacts, and recognizing their achievements through this annual honor.”

“Delaware women do not neatly fit into one box; we represent all ethnicities, religions, and backgrounds, and I am excited to seek a pool of nominees that reflects the unique and vast diversity of women in the First State,” 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 100 women have been inducted into the Hall of Fame of Delaware Women.

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.

Application forms are available at de.gov/women until midnight EST May 15.
