About the Annual Women's History Month Lunch Program

For 30 years, Prince George’s County has celebrated the dynamic accomplishments of women who serve in and partner with government and their impact on people and communities. This year, we will celebrate the stories of service—accomplishments and challenges—past and present while looking to the future. The Annual Women’s History Month Lunch draws 1,000 women not only from government, but also the arts, business, education, religion, nonprofits, and other disciplines who are doing great work. It is the County’s premiere networking event for those who want to connect to the women of the Washington metropolitan area.

The highlight of the event is the presentation of the coveted Gladys Noon Spellman Service Award​, which annually honors a woman who works in Prince George’s County Government and who resides in the County. The nominees must demonstrate strong leadership skills, and a track record of community involvement.

In addition, scholarships are presented to two high school seniors based on their academic achievements. The Gladys Noon Spellman Scholarships have been granted to young people in the County since 1999.

In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month in perpetuity. A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women. Prince George’s County began celebrating Women’s History Month by hosting this event in 1985.​​​
