WOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD (article first published : 2008-03-21)

Amy Kleinhans-Curd, former Ms South Africa and director of Dial A Teacher an organisation who assists students telephonically with their homework and research this week encouraged nominations in the education category of the prestigious Shoprite Checkers / SABC 2 Woman of the Year Award.

Celebrating its 13th anniversary as a major initiative for National Women’s Day, the Award pays tribute to the most exceptional and achieving women in the country who have not only achieved success in their own respective fields but who have made a tangible difference in communities and society as a whole.

Phenomenal South African women have been recognised through this premier accolade for achievement by women in South Africa for their unwavering commitment and dedication to making South Africa a better place.

South Africans are invited to participate in the search by nominating the country’s best in seven categories: business entrepreneurs, health, education, social welfare, arts, culture and communications, sport, and science and technology.

Each of the seven category winners of the 2008 Shoprite Checkers / SABC 2 Woman of the Year Award will receive R10,000 in prize money, while the overall winner will receive R30,000 in prize money.

The closing date for entries is May 9 and South Africans who would like to enter candidates can simply visit their nearest Shoprite or Checkers store or SABC offices to collect entry forms. Entry forms can also be downloaded from www.womanoftheyear.co.za

For more information contact the Award organisers by e-mail on womanoftheyear@shoprite.co.za or 021 980 4285.

After an exhaustive nationwide search campaign, the Award culminates in July 2008 with a spectacular gala evening in Cape Town to announce the winners. This dazzling event will be broadcast during prime time on August 9 (National Women’s Day).
