The ATHENA Award Celebration is an evening dinner reception in March, honoring both women and men who have achieved excellence in their profession or life's work, devoted time and effort in their communities to improve the quality of life for others, and actively helped women realize their full leadership potential. We use the nomination and selection criteria set by ATHENA International, which administers the ATHENA Award® Program worldwide.

The ATHENA Award Celebration is TBF's largest fundraising event. Proceeds benefit our scholarship program, and the continued success of both the event and our scholarship giving is due to considerable community support and sponsorships.

To nominate a deserving leader, please download the nomination form and instructions, and submit it prior to the deadline.

The 2022 ATHENA Award nomination deadline is extended through January 5, 2022.
