State Awards

AAUW-PA has established several awards to honor the contributions made by individuals and branches in the state each year.

Individuals, groups and/or branches are recognized at the AAUW-PA Annual Meeting, and are included in the AAUW-PA Annual Yearbook.

Outstanding Woman Award

The Outstanding Woman Award is given to a member of the branch for meritorious service to the branch and to the community. Submissions are due by February 15th.

Member Making a Difference Award

The Member Making a Difference Award is given to a branch member who has made a big difference in something important to the branch within the last year.

Nominations are due by February 15th.

Branch Highlights

Branches are asked to submit a paragraph of their top 1-2 (no more) highlights of the past year, with a photo of that activity.
