The Trailblazer Project
2020 Trailblazer Nominations
For our 12th Annual Trailblazer Luncheon, we are looking for nominations that celebrate the diverse fabric of our community to honor women and girls who have made groundbreaking contributions in Tallahassee-Leon County. Nominees from all sectors and fields are welcome. We march, celebrate, empower, and advocate for all women every day.
Smashing barriers and shattering glass ceilings, trailblazers make it possible for other women to leave their mark. Unsung Sheroes make the world turn but are seldom recognized for it. Age does not limit Girls who Can Do Anything. They are starting early, blazing trails for us to follow.
You may nominate a local woman for the Trailblazer Award or Unsung Shero Award. You may nominate a girl under 18 for the Girls Can Do Anything Award. Nominations are due by November 30th. Honorees will be selected by the Oasis Board of Directors, featured in the media, and presented with awards at the Trailblazer Luncheon on February 28, 2020.
Trailblazers in Schools
The Trailblazers In Schools project is a fun 45-minute interactive presentation that introduces children to the stories of local women who have broken barriers, shattered glass ceilings, and changed history.
The curriculum is based on Sunshine State Standards for Social Studies, presentations are facilitated for 2nd – 5th graders by trained volunteers and team members and focus on local women’s history. The program is available to your students FREE of charge.
Presentations are held each Spring.
If you are a parent of an elementary-age child, please help us bring local women’s history into the classroom by making an introduction to your child’s teacher.
Please help us spread the word about this program! For more details please call the Oasis Center at 850-222-2747.
