“We have been proud to sponsor this great event over the last several years, and it is an honor for us to present this award during the NPMA PestWorld event,” Target Specialty Products President David Helt said in a news release, referring to the international conference and expo taking place at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., Nov. 2-5, 2021.


All nominees must be women who currently work in the professional pest management industry:

  • 50% of the evaluation process will recognize the nominee’s contributions to the pest management industry.
  • 25% of the evaluation process will consider notable contributions the nominee has made to her company. Such contributions need not have been made from an executive level position, but rather initiatives and actions that have made a difference within the organization.
  • 25% of the evaluation process will recognize the nominee’s actions in personal leadership, community involvement, and stewardship of future women leaders.

Award nominations must be received by Aug. 31, 2021. Nominees may self-submit or may be nominated by others. Click here to submit the form.
