In his call for nominations, Schiff said in a statement that there is no specific criteria, although he looks for those who have improved the quality of life in their respective communities.
"Recipients of the ‘Woman of the Year award’ come from all walks of life and represent the thousands of women who make a positive impact in our region," Schiff said.
