As we approach International Women’s Month in March, WMBB wants to recognize the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and the quality of life.

WMBB will celebrate local women that inspire, lead, and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

We thank you for making your nominations. Are entries are closed for this year’s search. Please check back in March as we highlight outstanding women from our area. Our four local finalists will be eligible to be named our local Remarkable Woman of the Year – and then qualify to be named Nexstar Media Group’s national Woman of the Year.
