Raising ambition and combating the dangers of low self-esteem is what Strong Women Strong Girls (SWSG) is all about. Every day, we support positive mentoring relationships between college women and pre-adolescent girls in underserved local communities. To gain momentum locally around that mission, we established the STRONG Awards, designed to celebrate women and girls whose work has demonstrated a commitment to empowering women and girls throughout the greater Pittsburgh region. Each year, the Strong Awards honors the leadership and unwavering contributions of women and girls in the greater Pittsburgh region. Every year, we’ve grown stronger and more powerful as an organization and community.
Strong Nominees for the STRONG Award are women and girls who reside in the greater Pittsburgh region and embody the values of our organization. Awards will be presented in four categories: Professional, Young Professional, College, and Youth. For more information about the Strong Awards program, please contact Jocelyn Horner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
