The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame ~ Nomination Process

The Hall inducts women every two years on an even year cycle. Up to 10 women, usually 4 historical and 6 contemporary are inducted at a time and The Hall depends on members of the public to nominate extraordinary women. The next group of extraordinary women will be chosen in late 2019 and inducted into the Hall in 2020 so it’s not too soon to start thinking about who should become part of the Class of 2020!

The Selection Process

  • The Hall recruits an independent Selection Committee comprised of diverse citizens around the state who are experts in their fields.
  • The Selection Committee reviews all nominations and selects nominees for induction based on clear criteria and the strength of the nomination.
  • The selection committee presents a slate of nominees to the CWHF Board of Directors for final approval.
  • The selected women are officially inducted at a gala induction event.
