Women of Achievement 2020

Women of Achievement 2020

Do you know a woman who has made a significant contribution to our community? If so, please nominate her for one of the annual Women of Achievement awards that recognize individuals for their contributions in educational, volunteer, managerial, or professional roles. 

The Women of Achievement Event Committee encourages you to support this recognition program by nominating candidates by Wednesday, January 29, 2020. A panel of judges made up of past recipients and community leaders will select honorees. The judges will select recipients based on the information you provide that meets the criteria and standards of selection.


The Muskingum Family Y established the Women of Achievement Program in 1988 to honor women who achieve a level of excellence in their particular field of endeavor. Furthermore, the tribute increases community awareness, understanding, and appreciation of how women contribute to the economic and social health of the community. This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the Women of Achievement program. More than 227 women have been recognized and we are excited to have others join this prestigious group of community leaders.

The honorees will be inducted in the Academy of Women of Achievement on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, in the Ohio University Zanesville/Zane State College Campus Center with dinner beginning at 6 p.m.
