L’Oréal Paris Invites Nominations for Woman of Worth Volunteer Awards
Deadline: July 13, 2009

L’Oréal Paris is accepting nominations for its annual Woman of Worth awards program.

In 2009, there will be ten honorees selected from across the United States. L’Oréal will make a $5,000 donation to each honoree’s chosen charitable cause, and will make an additional $5,000 donation in the name of each winner to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. In addition, one honoree and her cause will be selected by the public at large via online vote and will be recognized as the National Woman of Worth Honoree, with the honoree’s charity receiving a donation of $25,000 from L’Oréal Paris in her name. All honorees will receive national recognition for both their cause and their efforts.

Nominees should have a record of exemplary service within their own communities and community at large, be able to demonstrate the impact of their work, be aspirational and inspirational to others, demonstrate commitment to their cause, and exemplify leadership.

Nominees must be women, legal residents of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia, 18 years of age or older, and consent to be nominated. All volunteer activities of the nominee must be unpaid and cannot include court-ordered community service; however, nominees who receive a nominal stipend for their service (e.g., in connection with a national service program) may be eligible. The volunteer activity should have lasted for at least six uninterrupted months and should be ongoing.

Self-nominations are permissible and encouraged.
