Jennie Award Deadline - June 1st
The GFWC Jennie Award honors one clubwoman from each GFWC Region for outstanding commitment to club, community, and family. They are chosen by their clubs to compete at state, region, and national levels for their outstanding personal commitment to club, community, and family.
The GFWC Jennie Award is named in honor of GFWC’s founder, Jane Cunningham Croly, who wrote for national newspapers under the pseudonym, “Jennie June.” The award highlights those extraordinary clubwomen who epitomize her spirit of independence, courage, and persistence in purpose through their roles as volunteers within their clubs, elsewhere in the community, and as members of a family or extended family. Although GFWC has many awards for states and clubs, the GFWC Jennie Award is the only national honor that recognizes individual members for personal excellence. In fact, it is the highest honor bestowed by GFWC.
Go Forth With Confidence Scholarship
The theme for our administration is adopted from the GFWC slogan, Unity in Diversity. Every club and every member is unique, yet we all complement each other. When we work together, we surpass what we can do on our own. My President’s Project ties in with GFWC’s Signature Program. It is to support our State Federation’s new initiative for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, the Go Forth With Confidence (GFWC) scholarship.
