L'Oréal Paris launches 2020 Women of Worth Grant Award Program
today Dec 2, 2019
L'Oréal Paris announced last week the launch of its 2020 Women of Worth Grant Award Program.
Now in its fourth year, the annual search invites the public to nominate exceptional Canadian women who selflessly volunteer their time to serve their communities and make a positive impact on the lives of others.
"These remarkable Canadian innovators possess unrelenting drive, passion and commitment and inspire us by their generosity and selflessness for the crucial causes they champion," said Milan Mladjenovic, general manager, L'Oréal Paris Canada, in a news statement.
"Every year, we are deeply moved by the personal motivations of the honourees and the beautiful impact their accomplishments continue to make to the lives of others and our world. These women show tremendous heart in all that they do, and we are humbled by their spirit and achievements."
The nominees will be judged on four distinct criteria: addressing a crucial need in the community; the impact their inspiring contributions have made; their innovation on developing solutions; and their passion to evoke change and inspire future generations.
Past award recipients have helped support Canadian families struggling with food insecurity and provided means for families to break free of domestic violence, among other causes.
“How can one not feel inspired after seeing the astounding difference a few people can make to effect real change in their communities and beyond?” said Aja Naomi King, L’Oréal Paris ambassador.
Following the review process, 10 women will be chosen and will each be awarded a $10,000 grant for their non-profit cause and the chance to be recognized as a L'Oréal Paris Women of Worth honouree.
Moreover, the 10 honourees will receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Toronto to attend the awards gala.
Submissions for the Canadian edition of the 2020 Women of Worth Grand Award Program are open now through January 5, 2020.
The 10 nominees will be announced in February 2020 and Canadians will have the opportunity to vote for a National Honouree to be awarded.
Voters can cast one online vote per email address, each day until March 4. These votes will be a contributing factor in the judging panel's selection of the 2020 National Honouree.
