• 2022 Winner's Booklet

Pueblo City-County Library District is now accepting nominations for the woman you want to honor. These awards have honored women who have made important contributions to our community and have celebrated the important role that women have played in Pueblo’s history. These awards provide an opportunity for any individual or organization to honor a special woman who has made an impact. The only criteria is that the woman must be a resident of Pueblo County currently or during the time the award honors. The person does not have to be living to be honored.

New this year, nominees will receive a flower bouquet and personalized message from the presenting individual/organization. All nominees will be recognized and presented with an “Outstanding Woman of 2022” handmade ceramic art piece by artist Kate Fox. 

With careful consideration, we will host the 2022 Outstanding Women Awards as a virtual event. It will be recorded and available for viewing online. In order to practice proper social distancing, there will be three recording sessions.
