INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Commission for Women (ICW) is now seeking nominations for the 10th Anniversary Torchbearer Awards. Torchbearers are the State of Indiana’s most prestigious recognition of women in Indiana.

Please consider nominating an extraordinary woman for the 10th Anniversary Torchbearer Award.

This year’s Torchbearer Awards Ceremony will be held on March 5, 2014, and marks a special milestone: the ICW has been honoring women who have made outstanding contributions to Indiana for 10 years.

A recipient need not be a corporate president or community leader to be honored.

The ICW is seeking to honor women who have eliminated barriers for other women, who have been pioneers in their industries or who have overcome immense obstacles while making Indiana a better place to live, work, and raise a family. Your nomination may include someone from the group whom some people say are the most important women in our state: mothers.

If you have any questions, please visit the ICW’s website at or call the ICW at (317)232-6720 to nominate an outstanding Indiana resident so that she can receive the recognition she deserves!

The ICW needs to receive the completed nomination forms no later than Friday, January 10, 2014, at 5 p.m. EST.
