St. Cloud Hospital and CentraCare Health System would like to hear about the influential women in your life.

They're hosting an awards program called "Spirit of Women," recognizing women of all ages who have gone the extra mile to make their communities better.

Nominees for the "Spirit of Women Awards" will be placed into one of three categories: young person role model - ages 14-20, community hero - 21 years and older, and health care hero, a medical professional.

Winners will be selected in each category based on the impact they've made on their community with regard to family, work and health. These regional winners will win a $1,000 award to put toward community work, and will move on to compete in the national "spirit of women" competition.

Nominations are due by March 4th.
