It will recognize the top female student athletes in the Capital Region - 10 from the high school level and five from local colleges. They will be chosen based on not only athletic achievement, but also academic excellence and community service.


The Sports Women of the Year will be announced in March and April.

The charities they choose will receive donations from event sponsors.
