L’Oreal Invites Nominations for Women of Worth Awards Honoring Exemplary Women Community Volunteers

L’Oreal Paris, a division of L’Oreal USA, Inc., has announced the opening of the 2012 Women of Worth awards nomination period. Now in its seventh year, the Women of Worth program has honored and celebrated sixty women who are making a difference in their communities.

L’Oreal Paris encourages people across the United States to nominate a woman they admire for her dedication to volunteerism and charitable efforts. A nominee should have a record of exemplary service within her community and the community at large, be able to demonstrate the impact of her work within her community, be aspirational and inspirational to others, demonstrate commitment to her cause, exemplify leadership, and be non-compensated for the activities for which she is nominated.

Nominees must be women, legal residents of the fifty United States or the District of Columbia, consent to be nominated, and be 18 years of age or older at the time of nomination. The nominee’s volunteer activities must have occurred in the continental U.S. and have primarily benefited domestic American needs. All volunteer activities of the nominee must be unpaid and cannot include court-ordered community service; however, nominees who receive a nominal stipend for their service (such as in connection with a national service program) may be eligible. The volunteer activity should have lasted for at least six uninterrupted months and should be ongoing.

Nominations may be submitted by individuals and organizations. Self-nominations are accepted and encouraged.

Ten honorees will each receive $10,000 for her charitable cause, and one national honoree will be chosen via a public online vote to receive an additional $25,000 for her charity. All ten honorees will be recognized and the national honoree will be announced at an awards ceremony in New York City.
