Guidelines for GFWC-MFWC
"Clubwoman Of The Year" Award

The “Clubwoman of the Year” Award is the highest honor presented annually at the District and State levels to an outstanding GFWC-MFWC member.  The award is given on the District and State levels to the Clubwoman who, in the opinion of the judges, has given of herself and truly exemplifies the Mississippi Federation Clubwoman.  The nominee should be a club member who has served her club and her community through her club.  Her club and her community must be better because she is an active volunteer.

Nomination materials will not be returned.  Judging will be done by GFWC members from another state.  The State winner will be chosen from among the District winners.  Please make every effort to send in a nomination from your club!
