The Women’s Sports Foundation is accepting nominations for the 2013 Sportswoman of the Year Award and Wilma Rudolph Courage Award.

For Sportswoman of the Year Award, athletes can be nominated for one of two categories: Individual Sport Category or Team Sport Category. Please note that the team sport category is open to an individual on a team, not the entire team. We would like you to nominate your top athlete(s) for this award below or by replying to this e-mail with the name of the athlete you would like to be considered and all her athletic accomplishments between August 13, 2012 and July 31, 2013.

Nominate an athlete for Individual Sportswoman of the Year. >>>

Nominate an athlete for Team Sportswoman of the Year. >>>

The nomination period will end June 30, 2013. We understand that the deadline for nominations is scheduled before the performance cut-off date of July 31, 2013. However, we must have your nomination by June 30th to begin research. Please e-mail any additional results achieved through July 31, 2013 to LFlores@WomensSportsFoundation.org by August 16th, and that information will be considered as well.

Nominations should include all national and international competition results and awards won during the allotted time frame. Each nomination should include the month and year in which the accomplishment(s) were achieved as well as an up-to-date world ranking.

In addition to the Sportswoman of the Year Award, the Women’s Sports Foundation is accepting nominations for the Wilma Rudolph Courage Award. If you know an athlete who exhibits extraordinary courage in her athletic performance, demonstrates the ability to overcome adversity and serves as an inspiration to others, please nominate her for the award. Deadline for submission is May 31, 2013. Submit your nomination for this award today!

Award winners will receive an all-expense paid trip to New York City to attend the 34th Annual Salute to Women in Sports Gala at Cipriani Wall Street on October 16, 2013. If you have any questions, please contact me at the number provided below. Thank you again for your continued support.  We look forward to receiving your nominations.

Yours in sport,
