2019 Awards and Top Projects Announced
July 15, 2019
Each year, the Top Projects are selected by GFWC chairmen who weigh in on the State Award and Club Creativity Award submissions from State Chairman. They show the cream of the crop of projects within each of the Community Service Programs and Advancement Areas. Clubwomen are encouraged to take inspiration and try the projects in their own communities.
The 2019 Awards were presented at the 2019 GFWC Annual Convention in Austin. From GFWC Program Awards to Partner Awards, clubwomen, clubs, and State Federations are recognized for the incredible work they do all year long.
