ATHENA AWARD, SPONSORED BY HERITAGE CORNER – The Athena Award Program celebrates the achievement of women as valued members and leaders of the community and recognizes those who support them. “Athena Goddesses” are women who strive toward the highest levels of professional accomplishment, have devoted their own time and energy to give back to their community, and also initiate paths so that others may follow. An Athena recipient is someone who assists women in reaching their full leadership potential; they exhibit excellence, creativity and initiative in their business or profession, and provide valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community.

ZEUS AWARD, SPONSORED BY HERITAGE CORNER – The Zeus Award Program is the counterpart to the Athena. “Zeus Award” recipients are male individuals who support a culture that encourages women to achieve their full leadership potential through active mentoring, support systems, and development actions. A Zeus Award nominee is someone who continually gives back to the larger community of women by providing and/or supporting leadership development opportunities and initiatives. A Zeus demonstrates excellence, creativity, and shows initiative in their business or profession while providing valuable services and contributing their time and energy to improve the quality of life for community members.

OUTSTANDING CITIZEN OF THE YEAR AWARD – The Outstanding Citizen of the Year Award recognizes two citizens that focus their work to the Bowling Green area, and have demonstrated an active leadership role for the community through involvement in business, civic, social and/or service organizations. Candidates for this award must live and/or work in the Bowling Green area, and must demonstrate active leadership which serves and improves their community.
