FOX21 is joining Nexstar Media Group in honoring “Remarkable Women” across the country and recognizing one of them as the “Nexstar Woman of the Year” in March.

Remarkable Women Winners Across the Country

March is International Women’s Month, an opportunity to acknowledge the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities. “Remarkable Women” is a nationwide Nexstar initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life. As part of the campaign, FOX21 is celebrating local women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women.

Based on nominations with universally selected criteria including community contributions, self-achievement, and family impact, FOX21 selected four local women for consideration for our area’s “Remarkable Woman.”
