Outstanding Women of Burlington County Awards

Each year the Burlington County Women’s Advisory Council and the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders host an Awards Reception honoring women who have made a difference in the Burlington County community. The Council annually honors women who have made significant contributions as well as demonstrated their support of other women. They may have acted as mentors, role models, or advocates for other women.

The winners will be chosen from several areas of exceptional service. They will be honored at our VIRTUAL awards reception on Monday, June 15 on the Council’s Facebook page @BurlingtonCountyWomen. The banquet provides a forum to explore and learn more about the often-unpublicized activities of the award recipients. 

The Council is also presenting scholarships to three outstanding 12th grade female students from Burlington County. The scholarships will include the Alice Paul Champion Award, the Celeste Arties Memorial Award and the Elizabeth Coleman White STEM Award. The Council is pleased to be awarding three Scholarships in the amount of $1,000 to each award recipient. 

If you previously purchased a ticket to the event, ad or sponsorship package, refunds will be issued.

Mentoring Event Series 

Women in the community will be invited to participate in free career mentoring events throughout the year sponsored by the Council. Check back for event dates later in the year.
