DEADLINE EXTENSION: Women’s History Recognition Award Nominations Due June 23, 2010

The Office of the Dean of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences seeks Women’s Leadership Recognition award nominations for CAHNRS alumnae who have distinguished themselves in one of two areas: Community Leadership and Service, or Professional and Academic Leadership. Please consider nominating one of your unit’s distinguished alumnae.

Please nominate a woman whom you believe represents the qualities embodied in a graduate from CAHNRS at Washington State University. This includes all academic and extension units that have been a part of the college in any way throughout its history. Nominations do not have to come from an academic unit and we encourage the many groups that have outstanding graduates working with them to nominate those individuals. We are committed to making the process as straight forward as possible. If you have any questions about the process or submittal requirements, please contact Tatum Weed, at or 509-335-3590.

The deadline has been extended one more week. Nominations will be accepted until June 23, 2010. Forms can be found at


WSU represented two of the 11 student designers from across the state in the third annual Project Red Dress in Seattle June 4. Competing for a $3,000 scholarship and a 3 month internship with Seattle couture designer Luly Yang, AMDT students Alison Bottemiller and Shannon Miller and the other competitors each had 16 hours, a $200 budget and the color red as inspiration. The end result was 11 stunning gowns modeled on the runway and judged by local and national celebrity judges, including Nick Verreos of Project Runway fame, Seattle Met magazine publisher Nicole Vogle, Seattle designer Luly Yang and Rose Dennis, a local fashion promoter and fund raising consultant. The annual fashion show benefits the American Heart Association’s Go Red campaign supporting heart health awareness for women.
