2008-03-13 00:00

The search for South Africa’s most inspiring and outstanding women in 2008 is under way, with the call for nominations for the Shoprite Checkers/SABC2 Woman of the Year Awards.

Celebrating its 13th anniversary as a major initiative for National Women’s Day, the award pays tribute to the most exceptional women in SA who have not only achieved success in their own respective fields, but who have made a tangible difference in communities and society as a whole.

Nominations in seven categories — business entrepreneurs; health; education; social welfare; arts, culture and communications; sport; and science and technology — can be filled out on entry forms at a Shoprite or Checkers store or SABC offices.

Each of the seven category winners of the 2008 Shoprite Checkers/SABC 2 Woman of the Year Awards will receive R10 000 in prize money, and the overall winner will receive R30 000.

The closing date for entries is Friday, May 9, 2008.
