Nominees sought for Woman Entrepreneur Award

WYOMING – The Wyoming Council for Women is seeking nominations for outstanding female entrepreneurs across the state for recognition of the annual Women Entrepreneur Award.

The Wyoming Entrepreneur Award recognizes women-owned businesses in Wyoming and is designed to increase the attention to, and recognition of, the contribution female entrepreneurs make to Wyoming’s economy. Applications are available on the Wyoming Council for Women’s Facebook in the albums section.

“Female entrepreneurs impact economies and families in every single community in Wyoming,” Jennifer Wilmetti, chair of the Wyoming Council for Women, said. “It requires tremendous courage and a belief in self that the Wyoming Council of Women celebrates. We encourage women entrepreneurs, as well as their families, friends and colleagues, to submit an application so we can recognize and celebrate the amazing Wyoming women helping to drive our local economies.”

Wilmetti added that it is more important now than every before to salute courage, grit and hard work due to the ongoing economic impact of COVID-19.

Nominees must be women who own or operate a Wyoming-based business that has operated continuously for at least three years. Nominees may nominate themselves or be nominated by another individual. Along with recognition on the Wyoming Council for Women website, social media and statewide media outlets, the award will be provided at a recognition ceremony in the recipient’s business location city. The deadline for 2021 nominations is June 30, 2020.
