Soroptimist International of Grass Valley celebrated Live Your Dream Education & Training Awards for Women on March 19.

Since 1972, the Soroptimists’ Live Your Dream Education & Training Awards (formerly the Women’s Opportunity Award) has distributed more than $25 million to tens of thousands of women who have overcome poverty, domestic and sexual violence, divorce, the death of a spouse, or other life challenges.

Soroptimist said these are women who had the courage and determination to turn their lives around.



This year, Soroptimist International of Grass Valley had two winners — Guinevere D. Ewing and Rebecca A. Younger.

The event took place at the Nevada County Contractor’s Association facility at which they had a catered dinner and a cake. The two winners — as well as their children and mother — a former member, and 21 Club members were in attendance.




Ewing went on to become one of the Sierra Nevada Region’s second place winners, and will receive her award at the Region’s conference to take place April 24-26 in Reno.
