About the Iris Awards
Wanting to recognize women of achievement in Southwest Washington who exemplified leadership, philanthropy and community service was the inspiration for the Iris Awards in 1985. For 37 years, the southwest Washington community has nominated outstanding women for recognition. The Iris Award was held to commemorate National Women’s History Month, to recognize International Women’s Day, and to honor volunteer efforts and community leadership of women in Clark County.
