Fort Saskatchewan's fourth annual International Women's Day is accepting nominations until February 2.
International Women's Day is celebrated across the world each year on March  8.
Leading up to the fourth annual gala, the Fort Saskatchewan International Women's Day Committee encourages the community to nominate an inspirational woman for an award.
"We're asking everybody, take a look at yourself, your neighbours, co-workers, friends, who are the gems in your community?" said Fort Saskatchewan International Women's Day committee chairperson, Rebecca Trotter. 
Nomination categories include, women's well being, professional achievement, volunteerism, exemplary youth, arts and culture, mentorship and humanitarian.
Nomination forms can be found on their website, or at various locations in the city including, Mix 107.9. Forms can be dropped off at the Fort Saskatchewan Families First Society.
This year's theme will be inspiration through the ages.
"We're expecting about 20 tables, so about 200 participants and each table will be represented by a woman that's led inspiration through the ages," said Trotter.
The gala will have three local guest speakers as well.
"We're really hoping it's going to be an evening to be inspired and ask ourselves, who's next? Who's the next Roberta Bondar? Who's the next Oprah?" said Trotter.
The gala takes place in the Lions Mane banquet hall at the Dow Centennial Centre on March 8. A time has yet to be determined.
Tickets go on sale after February 3 and will be available on Eventbrite.
