News Brief: Women's Hall of Fame

May 23, 2005 – The V.I. Commission on the Status of Women wants nominations to its Women's Hall of Fame.
Five each will be selected from the St. Thomas/St. John and St. Croix districts, and nominees may include women still living, as well as those who have died.
A formal induction ceremony will be held to honor selected women on Oct. 15 on St. Croix, and Oct. 29 on St. Thomas.

Areas in which women have contributed to the territory might include the arts, business, community service, government, health, religion, sports and others.
The public is invited to submit names until June 30. Applications will be available starting Wednesday at Tourism Department offices and the Legislature in both St. Thomas/St. John and St. Croix districts.
