Tribute to Women
Tribute to Women: Thursday, September 9, 2021
Tribute to Women is a 36-year-old tradition meant to celebrate the Tennessee Valley's most remarkable women! Nominees can live in any East Tennessee county and will be judged by out-of-state representatives from other YWCAs throughout the Southeast.
New to 2021: For this 36th annual Tribute to Women event, YWCA is changing up the format of the event from years past. This year's seven Honorees will be chosen by the judges and will be announced before the event on September 9th. Rather than highlighting the over 20 Finalists, YWCA will only highlight seven Honorees.
