This year the nominee’s activities can be volunteer or an extension or responsibility of their job. Nominations submitted in the last two years also will be considered.
Nominations may be submitted by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by sending them to League of Women Voters, P.O. Box 1072, Lawrence, KS 66044. The deadline is Thursday.
