Lindenhurst, NY - February 17, 2017 - Assemblywoman Kimberly Jean-Pierre (D-Babylon) announced she is accepting nominations for the 2017 Women of Distinction Awards in honor of Women’s History Month.

“Women’s History Month is a time to reflect on the progress women have made and also reminds us of how much we still need to do to achieve full equality,” said Jean-Pierre. “We all know women who deserve to be recognized for their perseverance, hard work and service, and this is an opportunity to thank and celebrate them.”

The annual Women of Distinction Awards recognizes women who have made an impact in the community in fields including education, business, health care, volunteerism and community service. To nominate someone you know, visit online or contact Jean-Pierre’s office. Nominees must reside in the 11th Assembly District, which includes portions of the town of Babylon – ­­­such as Amityville, Copiague, Lindenhurst, Wyandanch, and Wheatley Heights – and parts of North Babylon, West Babylon, Deer Park, and East Farmingdale.” The deadline for nominations is Tuesday, Feb. 21.

The 2017 Women of Distinction Awards Ceremony will be held on Friday, March 3, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., at Dominican Village, Helen Butler Hall, located at 565 Albany Ave. in Amityville.

Jean-Pierre also invites elementary school students to submit artwork for her Women’s History Month Art Contest. Winners receive an award and have their artwork featured on the cover of next year’s activity booklet.
