The 21-member commission's mission is to identify and advocate for programs, legislation and services to meet the needs of the women of Baltimore County, according to the Baltimore County government website.

The awards ceremony recognizes two age groups: students and women older than high-school age. Both must be residents of Baltimore County for more than three years.

The deadline for nominations is 4 p.m. Jan. 12, and awards will be presented in March.
