The awards are meant to recognize the contributions that women have made in volunteering in the community, through professional work and through philanthropy.
Although the Women of Distinction Awards took a hiatus in 2010, it is now back, and will be held during Womens History Month in March, according to a news release.
There are four categories: the Progress for Women Award, Community and Public Service Award-Professional, Community and Public Service Award-Volunteer, and the Grace N. Mitchell Lifetime Achievement Award.
The deadline to submit nominations is Jan. 31. For information on the nomination process, visit http://www.sloccf.org.
Winners will be honored at the Women of Distinction Ceremony at Cuesta College from 4 to 6 p.m. on March 20.
