Celebrating remarkable women in Northeast Ohio

Contests

In honor of International Women’s Month in March, FOX 8 wants to recognize ‘remarkable women’ making a difference.

( Watch our interview with last year’s winner in the video above. Note this was pre-panademic- which is why our anchors were not wearing masks or social distancing in the studio)

We have received more than a hundred entries highlighting women in Northeast Ohio who lead, inspire and, boost others up in their community. In March, we will highlight four local women to be considered for Nexstar’s Nationwide 2021 ‘Woman of The Year Award.’

Last year, we received more than 200 entries about women doing incredible things here in Northeast Ohio. Our winner was Traci Peltz. See her story and the other three finalists below.
