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.
Volunteers in Action: GFWC du Midi Woman’s Club (Alabama), GFWC Valamont Woman’s Club (Tennessee), GFWC Viera Woman’s Club (Florida), GFWC Woman’s Club of Plant City (Florida), and GFWC Junior Women’s Club of Walpole (Massachusetts)
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
GFWC Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
