Each year, AAUW Port Townsend presents the Woman of Excellence Award to an East Jefferson County woman who has contributed significantly to the local community through paid or volunteer work. This award is a tradition unique to our branch since 1996.

All community members are invited to submit nominations – deadline late October.

The award is given at the December Holiday Event (read about Jean Camfield’s award and career here [Peninsula Daily News]…).

Woman of Excellence nominees are evaluated on each of the following criteria:
— Role Model: inspires and energizes others; serves as a model for others to follow

— Teacher/Mentor: instructs, supports and/or advises groups/individuals
