Thank you for your nominations for our Remarkable Women contest!

We’re currently going through those to select four finalists as we approach International Women’s Month in March. WWLP-22News looks forward to recognizing the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

WWLP-22News will celebrate local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month —it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

In February and March, we highlighted four local women who were considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2020 Woman of the Year Award.

Judith Souweine of Amherst is our local winner of the Remarkable Women Contest. She will be traveling to New York City later this month to attend a taping of the Mel Robbins Show. The national winner of the Remarkable Women Contest will be announced on the Mel Robbins Show.
