Mannington awards program recognizes singular women
Mannington is seeking nominations for the 2006 Stand on a Better World Awards. The annual award recognizes outstanding women who are committed to humanitarian projects in three distinct areas: Social, Economic and Environmental.
The grand prize winner receives $25,000 for a favorite charity while winners in the two remaining categories will be given $10,000 for charity. Five finalists will also receive $1,000 to donate to a humanitarian cause. In addition, $1,500 worth of Mannington products will go to each of the top three winners and those who nominated them. Entries will be judged by a panel of distinctive women including media personality Leeza Gibbons; figure-skating star Dorothy Hamill; former New Jersey governor Christine Todd Whittman; and Deborah Bell, the top winner at last year's awards and co-founder of nonprofit organization Refuge International.
The deadline for entries is Aug. 31 and winners will be announced Oct. 16. A special awards ceremony at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia is slated for Nov. 16. For more information visit www.standonabetterworld.com.
