Arizona Women's Hall of Fame seeks nominees

The Arizona Women's Hall of Fame (AWHOF) is planning an induction ceremony for November 10, 2008, a year from now, and they are currently inviting nominations to honor women who have played a significant role in shaping Arizona. Today there are 75 inductees in the Hall of Fame, women who have been honored posthumously for their contributions in fields ranging from agriculture, education, and politics to the arts, philanthropy, and medicine. Major sponsors of the event are Arizona State Library, Archives, & Public Records; Arizona Historical Society; Arizona Humanities Council; Office of the Governor; Sharlot Hall Museum; and a representative from the public. The nomination form has been updated and simplified, and will be available shortly on the Website.
