    We received so many excellent applications this year and we want to thank and commend all Leagues for their outstanding and innovative program work.  The finalists stood out for their efforts in this award area.  Please read about their projects below and use the grid to rank them in order of your favorite project.

    "What an exciting endeavor!  The League has allowed me to participate in events such as networking at the state level, meeting local officials in our community, participating in candidates forums and many more activities. Everywhere I go I am proud to be a League member and display my "button" to promote our local League. Every opportunity I have I talk about our League and all of its successes. Being in the League has made me grow democratically and non-partisan. The League is an exciting and educational organization for EVERYONE and especially for me!"

    "Being a part of the League pushes me to stay involved in my community passionately. I have served on the City of Wilmington Recreation Advisory Board for a number of years as chairperson, and recently we were able to pass a bond issue which will greatly enhance parks and recreation in our area.

    My work in the League has provided me with the skills to take an active, productive part in my community. I am forever grateful to the woman who ASKED me to join our local League."
