Polish School Students Win
Prizes For Polish Women’s
Hall of Fame Nominations

HAMTRAMCK, Mich. – The Piast Institute visited the Adam Mickiewicz Polish Language School at Our Lady of Czestochowa in Sterling Heights to introduce the Polish Women’s Hall of Fame and talk to the students about the women honored and the process for nominating new inductees. The students were invited to submit nominations to the Hall of Fame for an entry in a drawing to receive an Amazon gift certificate.

Each nominated a woman he or she believed had made a significant contribution to the world and deserves the recognition of the Hall of Fame. The students were told about the Hall of Fame and its mission to increase awareness of and appreciation for the achievements of Polish women throughout history and around the world.

The drawing was held on June 7 at the Piast Institute in Hamtramck. The winning students were Julia Kusmierczyk with her nomination for Stephanie Louise Kwolek in the category of Science and Education, Emilia Karpinski with her nomination for Danuta Siedzikowna in the category of Public Life and Service, and Mikolaj Albrecht with his nomination for Anna Lewandowska in the category of Sports. Each nomination will be reviewed by the selection committee for the Hall of Fame and considered for inclusion in the September 2017 selection cycle.

The Polish Women’s Hall of Fame was launched by the Piast Institute in March 2017. Nominations are accepted on a rolling basis for two selection cycles, one in March and the other in September. Members of the public are invited to submit their own nominations using the form available on the Polish Women’s Hall of Fame website at www.FamousPolishWomen.com. Nominations can be submitted by email, fax, mail, or directly through the website.
