The Keene Sentinel is looking to pay tribute to a few extraordinary women: high achievers, role models, natural leaders and difference-makers. We’re looking for women who are helping to drive the region’s economy, who are imagining and facilitating civic possibilities, who are engaging and educating young minds, who are inspiring innovation, who are embracing important change, who are taking risks and defying expectations, and who are championing quality-of-life issues.

Do you know a woman whose dedication and effort is effecting positive change in the lives of others? Do you know of a woman who has used her success in business to further causes she cares about? How about a passionate politician or a creative teacher?

For a seventh straight year, The Sentinel will honor some of the region’s most devoted and inspirational female leaders at an upcoming Extraordinary Women awards gala and in an accompanying full-color magazine.

Tell us about the woman you’d like to nominate in a letter that’s no more than one page in length. Nominations can be sent by mail, email, or dropped off at The Sentinel. Mail to The Sentinel newsroom, attention Paul Miller, 60 West St., Keene, N.H. 03431; or email pmiller@keenesentinel.com. Deadline is end of day Monday, July 1.
