Award recipients will be selected in one of the nine award categories (there may be more than one recipient in each category) and will be recognized at the dinner and their picture and bio will appear in local press articles and the event program. In addition, a pre-selected recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award as well as the Friend of the YWCA of the Niagara Frontier Award will be honored and presented with an award at the dinner.
