Every March, during Women’s History Month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) honors one outstanding woman from each of the communities in the 29th Congressional District. They include: Alhambra, Altadena, Burbank, Glendale, Monterey Park, Pasadena, San Gabriel, South Pasadena and Temple City.
“Recipients of the ‘Woman of the Year award’ come from all walks of life and represent the thousands of women who make a positive impact in our region,” Rep. Schiff said in a statement. “I urge constituents to contact my office and let us know about some of the admirable women in our communities by nominating them for this year’s award.”
While there are no specific criteria for nomination, Rep. Schiff looks for women who — through their work or volunteerism — have improved the quality of life in our community.
Nominations should be sent to Mary.Hovagimian@mail.house.gov, and include a written description of the nominee’s accomplishments, the home address, phone number and email of the nominee and the nominator’s name and contact information.
