Women’s Opportunity Awards


We give two annual Women's Opportunity Awards to women who are head of household and enrolled in school while working to support their families. The cash awards of $1,500 for first place and $1,000 for second place may be spent in any way the winner chooses and are intended to recognize the women’s strength and determination. Winners are chosen from among the applicants by judges from the local community.

This award is a signature program of Soroptimist International of the Americas. Each year our first place winner is also be submitted to the South Central Region to be considered for a Region award. Region winners are submitted to Soroptimist International of the Americas to be considered for a Federation award.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2013-2014 Women's Opportunity Awards program. Please download the application form and reference form. Both are writeable PDFs. Applications and supporting documentation must be received by December 15, 2013.
