Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (center; D-Howard Beach) on Tuesday announced the opening of nominations for her 2020 Women of Distinction Awards “to recognize the incredible women who are going above and beyond to strengthen South Queens and create a brighter future for all.”
Awards will be given for work in various fields, including health care, business, volunteer work, humanitarian work, education, and military service. Winners will be honored at an awards ceremony in March, details to be determined.
“This March, let’s not only celebrate Women’s History Month by honoring the women of the past who broke down barriers, but also recognize women of today who are inspiring others and working hard to put our community on a better path,” Pheffer Amato said.
Nominations for the 2020 Women of Distinction Awards must be submitted by close of business on Friday, Feb. 28, to her Rockaway District Office (95-16 Rockaway Beach Blvd.), via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or fax (718) 945-9549.
