The Association for Women Veterinarians Foundation has opened nominations for its Outstanding Women Veterinarian of the Year and Distinguish Service Awards.

Nominations for Outstanding Women Veterinarian of the Year are open to any woman graduate of an accredited veterinary school. The award is designed to recognize achievement and effort by a woman veterinarian in any field of veterinary medicine, including general private practice, research and public health. Nominations should emphasize the nominee’s professional accomplishments, according to the group.

Nominations for the Distinguished Service Award are open to any individual, regardless of professional status or gender. The award is designed to recognize efforts and contributions by the nominee to improve the status of women in veterinary medicine. As such, nominations should emphasize contributions to professional groups, veterinary associations, state boards, publications, etc., according to the group.

All nominations should include name, address, email address and phone number of the nominee, the nominee’s professional activity; and the nominee’s school and year of graduation. Possible supporting materials include, but are not limited to, lists of organizations to which the nominee belongs; list of honors, awards, publications and other activities; and a biographical sketch including educational background, according to the group.

Four copies of each nomination package should be sent, postmarked by April 20, 2012, to Dr. Chris Stone Payne, Awards Chair, 55 Mowry Ave., Fremont, CA 94536. Dr. Stone may also be contacted with nomination questions at drstone@mvvc.com or 510-797-2323, the group reported.
