The Georgina MacDougall Davis Founder’s Award
Established in 1976, the Georgina MacDougall Davis Founder’s Award, affectionately nicknamed the “Georgina,” is named after the University of Washington journalism student who founded the Theta Sigma Phi journalism society in 1909, which would later become the Association for Women in Communications. The Founder’s Award is given annually to a Seattle Chapter member who consistently exhibits the highest ethics, professional excellence and personal commitment in everything she does.
The AWC Seattle Star Award
The Seattle Star award honors a chapter member whose exceptional volunteer work within the last year has greatly benefited AWC Seattle. Examples may include expanding the range or adding value to the chapter’s member benefits and/or bringing increased public attention to the chapter’s mission, programs and services.
