Do you know a young woman between the ages of 14 and 17 who exhibits leadership qualities as a volunteer in your community or school? A young woman who sees challenges instead of obstacles? If you know a young woman who believes in the power of volunteer action, then she may be eligible for the Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award.

                The Violet Richardson Award is a Soroptimist International of the Americas’ leadership and volunteer recognition program dedicated to teen girls. Soroptimist International of Willimantic is one of nearly 1,500 clubs that make up Soroptimist International of the Americas, a volunteer service organization for business and professional women committed to improving the lives of women and girls in local communities and throughout the world.
