Harlequins ‘More Than Words’ Awards Open for Nominations
Nominations are open for the Harlequin More Than Words Award. My publisher, Harlequin, is committed to honoring girls/women for their good works, celebrating their accomplishments and supporting causes that are meaningful to them.
Currently, Harlequin is soliciting inspiring stories of girls/women who have made extraordinary contributions to their communities. Five finalists, selected by the Harlequin employee committee, will be up for a public vote on October 18th, 2012.
The three recipients with the highest number of votes will be awarded the 2013 Harlequin More Than Words award, and the announcement will take place in January 2013. Harlequin will also make a donation of $15,000 to each of their causes. Their stories will be the inspiration for fictional short stories written by our Harlequin authors and distributed for free as eBooks—all with the aim of inspiring readers to turn awareness into action by encouraging them to become engaged and make a difference.
Those within the Harlequin family, including authors, are not eligible to submit a nomination; however, there are undoubtedly girls/women you may know who are making a difference in the community. We hope that you will encourage women in your network to nominate someone! Also, please feel free to share the news about our nomination phase with your readers via your website, tweets and/or Facebook pages. The nomination form is due before July 6th, 2012. For more information, visit HarlequinMoreThanWords.com.
Reward the generous girls/women in your life by recognizing their amazing efforts.
