MNWT Outstanding Young Adult Nomination
Nominees must be 11th or 12th grade students. A nominee may receive local honors during the spring of his/her 12th grade year and be nominated the following fall for the Minnesota Women of Today Award. A chapter may submit multiple nominees; however, a separate nomination form must be submitted by November 1 for each nominee along with a $25 nomination fee each.

NOTE: this form requires two (3) signatures: one from the Nominee, one from the nominator, and one from the Parent/Guardian if nominee is under 18 years of age. Be sure to have all signatory representatives present when completing this form. Signatures can be done by your mouse, or your finger on a writable screen.

Use the File Upload field found at the bottom to include the required attachments.

Responses to the online form will be viewed by the MNWT Winter State Awards Chair by due date. Upon completion of the form, click Submit; you will receive a confirmation screen if your form has been successfully submitted. (rev 2019)
