Schiff Calls on Constituents to Nominate Outstanding Women for a Congressional Award

Washington, DC - Every March, during Women’s History Month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) honors one outstanding woman from each of the communities (Alhambra, Altadena, Burbank, Glendale, Monterey Park, Pasadena, San Gabriel, South Pasadena, and Temple City) in the 29th Congressional District.

“Recipients of the ‘Woman of the Year award’ come from all walks of life and represent the thousands of women who make a positive impact in our region,” Rep. Schiff said. “I urge constituents to contact my office and let us know about some of the admirable women in our communities by nominating them for this year’s award.”

While there are no specific criteria for nomination, Rep. Schiff looks for women who — through their work or volunteerism — have improved the quality of life in our community.

Nominations should be sent to ann.peifer@mail.house.gov, including:

  • A written description of your nominee’s accomplishments
  • The city in which she resides
  • An address and telephone number where she can be reached

The deadline for nominations is February 15, 2011.
