We will begin accepting entries for Springfield’s 2022 Remarkable Woman soon. The nomination period will be open from November 29 through December 31, 2021.  Check back in March as we highlight outstanding women from our area.  Our four finalists will be eligible to be named our local Remarkable Woman of the Year – and then qualify to be named Nexstar Media Group’s national Woman of the Year.  Our Remarkable Women campaign coincides with March’s celebration of Women’s History Month.

KOLR 10 and Ozarks Fox want to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress, and quality of life.

Leading up to International Women’s Day, KOLR 10 and Ozarks Fox will highlight four local women who inspire, lead, and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

One woman will be named Springfield’s Remarkable Woman of the Year in early April! Our station will donate $1000 to the winner’s charity of choice – in their honor. The Remarkable Woman from our market will be featured in a Remarkable Women special that will air nationwide.
