Prairie Business opens nomination window for Top 25 Women in Business awards

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Prairie Business magazine is proud to invite nominations for its Top 25 Women in Business 2019 awards. Nominations can be submitted online here.

Now in its sixth year, the annual contest was created to draw attention to the many creative, successful businesswomen in North Dakota, South Dakota and western Minnesota.

"Women still are underrepresented as business owners and CEOs, but that representation is bound to increase," said Tom Dennis, Prairie Business editor.

"That's why it's worth celebrating exceptional women's achievements: to highlight how fast things are changing, how successful women are becoming and how profoundly our region's economy is relying on them."

The magazine is looking for women who are making significant impacts on their chosen profession or industries. Consideration also will be given to a nominee's volunteerism and community service.

 Nominees can be entrepreneurs, executives, human service professionals, elected officials or anyone else whose career success and civic involvement makes her stand out.

In short, if you know of a woman in the Dakotas or western Minnesota whose hard work deserves recognition, Prairie Business invites you to nominate her!

The deadline for making a nomination is Jan. 13. The 25 winners will be announced in our March 2018 issue.

Previous winners of a Top 25 Women in Business award from Prairie Business are not eligible.
