Mannington Mills is seeking nominations for its third annual “Stand On A Better World Awards,” which recognizes women who have made a significant contribution on either a local, national or global level. This year’s award recipients will be determined by a panel of three judges: tennis great Billie Jean King, ABC news correspondent Deborah Roberts and Olga Murray, who was honored with A Better World Award last year for her work with children in need.
Tom Davis, president and ceo of Mannington Mills said the
purpose of the awards is to call attention to individuals who often do not
receive recognition for their efforts. “Every year we learn about women who see
a way to make people’s lives better and decide to do it – to make an impact,”
said Davis.” They are the unsung heroes. Some work to improve the quality of
life or the economic situations for others, while others help to protect our
natural resources. No matter what the cause or how they did it, these women
have made an impact and they deserve to be recognized.”
Nominations will be
accepted from April 1 through August 1, 2007. To suggest a candidate or to
