Soroptimist International of Anacortes offers the following Awards throughout the year:
Violet Richardson Award: Named in honor of the president of the first Soroptimist club who had a lifelong commitment to volunteerism, the Violet Richardson Award is given every year to a high school age girl who is pursuing her leadership aspirations through volunteer service.
Women Helping Women Grant: This grant is available to women living in Skagit county to help them pay for classes or special training to further enhance their skills, either as a working professional or as a volunteer and to allow them to continue helping other women.
Woman of Distinction Award: This award acknowledges a woman in our Anacortes community who is working to improve the lives of women and girls through her professional, business, or volunteer efforts. The ideal candidate is a woman who has worked in extraordinary ways to benefit women and girls, demonstrates exemplary character and leadership, and serves as a role model for other women.
Live Your Dream Award: The Live Your Dream Award is presented yearly. It assists women who provide the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education, skills and employment prospects.
Dream It, Be It: This is a program developed by Soroptimist International of the Americas, targeting 7th and 8th grade girls to help them identify and pursue their dreams, and set goals to achieve these dreams. Last year, in lieu of conducting our own symposium, we partnered with Soroptimist International of Fidalgo Island and our local middle school. We provided financial support and chaperones for the girls attending the EXPANDING YOUR HORIZONS STEM seminar in Bellevue, WA.
