Woman of the Year

Sponsored by the Kerr Country Women’s Chamber, Inc.

General Information

Women in our community deserve special recognition for their efforts, talents and skills in making Kerr County a better place to live. The Outstanding Women of the Year (OWOY) Award celebrates how far women have come in leadership roles in the business, community and philanthropic fields. While many of these women come from different industries and walks of life, they share several traits— a strong sense of self, a success-driven work ethic and the extraordinary accomplishments to show for it. Their commitment, vision and talents make them true leaders in their communities. We are seeking nominations of women who have made important, perhaps unique, economic, social, cultural, civic or humanitarian contributions to their communities. To honor the women who has shown such extraordinary leadership, the Kerr County Women’s Chamber (KCWC) will select three nominees for this year’s Outstanding Women, in the areas mentioned below. The winner is announced at the Kerrville Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet in October.  Your participation is requested in nominating outstanding women in Kerr County by completing the application below.
