NewsChannel 9 wants to recognize the great contributions 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.

Leading up to International Women’s Day, NewsChannel 9 will highlight four local women who 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.

One woman will be named Woman of the Year and win a trip to New York City to attend The Mel Robbins Show. From all of the local winners, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!
