Every March, in recognition of Women's History Month, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) honors outstanding women from his district. The 28th Congressional District includes the cities and communities of Atwater Village, Burbank, East Hollywood, Echo Park, Elysian Valley, Glendale, Griffith Park, Hollywood, Hollywood Hills, La Cañada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Los Feliz, Montrose, Pasadena, Shadow Hills, Silver Lake, Sunland, Tujunga and West Hollywood.
"Recipients of the "Woman of the Year Award' come from all walks of life and represent the thousands of women who make a positive impact in our region," Rep. Schiff said. "I urge constituents to contact my office and let us know about some of the admirable women in our communities by nominating them for this year's award."
Constituents are encouraged to nominate women in their community -- while there are no specific criteria for nomination, Rep. Schiff looks for women who -- through their work or volunteerism -- have improved the quality of life in our community. Nominations can be sent to Mary Hovagimian (firstname.lastname@example.org). Nominations should include a written description of your nominee's accomplishments, the home address, phone number and e-mail of the nominee, and the nominator's name and contact information.
