To Present These Prestigious Awards:

Women of Our Community Awards  •  ATHENA Leadership Award  •  ATHENA Young Professional Award

We will honor these exemplary women leaders from our community at this award dinner ceremony.


In its fourteenth year of print, the mission of The Medina County Women’s Journal is to Educate, Energize, and Empower Women Through Knowledge.  ATHENA International and our organization have such a similar mission that it was natural for us to bring the ATHENA Awards to Medina County in 2013 to acknowledge these remarkable women leaders.

The ATHENA International was founded in 1982 and the mission is to support, develop, and honor women leaders, and is reflective of a quote attributed to Plato, “What is honored in a country will be cultivated there.”  This quote has inspired our program’s format, as we will be honoring ALL nominated women who are improving the quality of life for others in our community with an award of a “Women of Our Community.” We also present the ATHENA Young Professional to one young emerging leader.  Following the dinner program, one woman will be honored with the ATHENA Leadership Award.
