Each year the St. Johns Cultural Council recognizes women who have profoundly influenced the artistic environment of St. Johns County with the Dr. Gail Pflaster ROWITA (“Recognizing Outstanding Women in the Arts”) Awards.
Members of the community are encouraged to submit nominations of women who have made significant contributions to the arts in St. Johns County through their work, leadership, or philanthropic support.
The nominee’s impact on the cultural community is the most important criteria for determining the final selections. Visual, literary, and performance artists, educators, presenters, and philanthropic supporters of the arts are eligible for the award. Past nominees who have not been selected are also eligible to be re-nominated.
