The Soroptimist International of Humboldt Bay is looking for nominations for their annual Ruby Award recipient. The Ruby Award honors women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary differences in the lives of women or girls. Honorees are women who have worked to improve the lives of other women or girls.

Women may nominate themselves or another woman they feel is deserving of this honor. The Humboldt Beacon especially encourages the nomination of women residing in the Eel River Valley.

The recipient will be recognized at an honorary dinner in March and will receive $500 to the organization of her choice. The Ruby Award recipient then advances to other levels of the Soroptimist organization with a chance of winning $5,000 for the organization of her choice. For a nomination form or questions contact Sue Galliani at 445-3791 or e-mail at: Nominations are due by Dec. 1.
