Past winners include former County Commissioner Jan Platt, former University of South Florida president Betty Castor, Clerk of the Circuit Court Pat Frank and the late children's advocate Dottie Berger MacKinnon, among others.

The county says selection criteria could include achievements in a chosen field; efforts to elevate the status of women; enduring contributions to the quality of life for residents; service to the community; and inspiration to society. A biographical sketch, photo and description of qualifications are required.
