Military Woman of the Year
To support the promotion of women in the defense industry, WID Palmetto Chapter initiated the Military Women of the Year award in 2009. MWOY is designed to recognize women serving in the Armed Forces to include Active Duty and Reservist/National Guard, who have displayed leadership, commitment to national security, education and community as well as promoted for the advancement and recognition of women. Award categories for all services include:
- Junior Enlisted: E-1 to E-3
- Non-Commissioned Officers: E-4 to E-6
- Senior Enlisted: E-7 to E-9
- Company Grade Officers: O-1 to O-3
- Field Grade Officers: O-4 to O-5
Separate awards are made in each of these categories for Active Duty and Reservist/National Guard.
For 2018 we are also presenting awards in the following categories:
SPAWAR Systems Center Atlantic Civilian
- Female Civilian of the Year
- Female Executive Civilian of the Year
WID Palmetto Chapter hosts an annual soiree to acknowledge all nominees and announce the year’s winners. The event, typically held in the Spring, also serves as WID-PC’s annual STEM Scholarship fundraiser. The WID-PC STEM Scholarship awards multiple $2,500 scholarships to female students in South Carolina pursuing STEM degrees, with at least one scholarship reserved for Active Military, Reservist/National Guard or Veteran. This year’s MWOY soiree will be held on March 21, 2019 from 5:30-9:00PM at Founders Halls of Charlestown Landing. For more information on the MWOY soiree, check out our event page.
