Welcome to the inaugural Women of the Year Blog!
Our committee is honoured to have the opportunity to share news, ideas, stories and inspiration of the women of our region through this blog. In the coming months, you can check-in here to read profiles for this year’s nominees, spotlights on sponsors and previous winners, and to share our journey as we prepare to recognize women worthy of Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest sized celebrations!
As official Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest volunteers, our planning is year-round and, of course, intensifies as the fall approaches. Our role is not only to look after the finest of details like the centrepieces and the room layout, but also to encourage our community to shine a light on the achievements of women of all ages.
It is always an honour to learn about our nominees and applaud their achievements publicly through K-W Oktoberfest Rogers Women of the Year. To help with the nomination process, we have broken the celebration down into eight award categories:
- Arts & Culture
- Community Service
- Group Achievement
- Health & Wellness
- Lifetime Achievement
- Sports & Recreation
- Young Adult (14 to 25)
We encourage you to reflect on the past year, month, week of your life and note the important women who have inspired, mentored, lead, followed, or sparked something important in our community or in you. Honour these women with a nomination for an K-W Oktoberfest Rogers Women of the Year award here http://womenoftheyear.oktoberfest.ca/nomination-process/.
We look forward to a Wunderbar celebration!
