LA CROSSE, WI -

The YWCA of La Crosse wants to honor women making a difference in our community.

Since 1982, the organization has hosted its 'Tribute to Outstanding Women,' where dozens of women were honored for work eliminating racism and empowering women.

Right now, the YWCA is looking for nominees to be recognized.

Ruthann Schultz, the interim director, hopes to receive several nominations for women from many walks of life.

"We're hoping to get nominations from businesses, corporations, form non-profit organizations; anyone can nominate a woman," says Schultz.

Nominations are due September 18, and can be found at the YWCA's website.

The 'Tribute to Outstanding Women' banquet is November 14.
