Since 1977, the YWCA’s annual Tribute Awards have honored over 250 women representing a distinguished sorority of leaders and trail-blazers. The Tribute luncheon, where honorees receive formal recognition, is one of our community’s most popular and widely-supported celebrations.

YWCA Tribute Award honorees are selected within a number of areas for their extraordinary efforts to strengthen our community. These areas include: Advocacy; Arts; Business, Management, Industry, & Labor; Community Service; Professions; Sports, Fitness, & Wellness; and Student.

Because developing leaders among young women is key to the YWCA’s vision, the YWCA Tribute Student Honoree will also receive the Judy Lloyd Student Leadership Award Scholarship. This $2,000 award is designated to help Student Honorees achieve their education goals after graduation from high school. In addition, three other students will be selected from the nominees in the student category to receive the YWCA Helen Claytor Achievement Scholarship, a $500 award.
