In observance of International Women’s Day, Ten Thousand Villages Lawrence will honor a local woman who has helped shape the lives of those around her through education.
The store, 835 Massachusetts St., is now accepting nominations for a woman “whose teaching has most influenced your life.” The winner will receive a Ten Thousand Villages gift card at an in-store celebration on March 8, International Women’s Day.
Nominations should include a photograph and a brief statement about the nominee, who does not have to be a professional teacher. A committee of Ten Thousand Villages board members will choose the honoree.
Entries can be submitted in person, online at the store’s Facebook page or sent to TTVcelebrateswomen@gmail.com. All nominations will be displayed at Ten Thousands Villages until March 8.
