• ATHENA Nomination

  • The Champaign County Chamber of Commerce invites you to submit your nomination for the 2021 ATHENA Award®. This award honors individuals who strive toward the highest levels of professional accomplishment- women and men who excel in their chosen fields, have devoted time and energy to their community in meaningful ways and who actively guide or mentor women to become great leaders.

    The ATHENA Award® Program is sponsored by the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce and Spherion. The recipient’s lapel pin is provided by Busey Wealth Management.

    ATHENA recipients must meet each of three specific criteria:
    • Demonstrate excellence, creativity and initiative in their business or profession
    • Provide valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community
    • Assist women in reaching their full leadership potential

    Nominations are due back to the Chamber by Friday, February 26 by 3:00 p.m. Late nominations will not be considered. Our intention is to celebrate the 2021 ATHENA Award® Recipient at an in-person event in May. Details of such event are subject to change given any forthcoming CDC and public health guidelines or mitigation measures.
