As we approached International Women’s Month in March, KFOR wanted to recognize the great contributions that women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life. 

KFOR will celebrate local women that inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

Thank you for the amazing nominations. Coming soon, we will feature the Remarkable Women of Oklahoma. We will  highlight four local women who will be considered for Nexstar’s nationwide 2020 Woman of the Year Award.

Thank you to all the women who nominated other women for this honor. We appreciate all the remarkable women in our state and across the country. 

It is time to announce the winne of the Oklahoma Remarkable Women Contest! That honor goes to Sylvia Pollard Driggins! She will now be flown to New York City for a taping of the Mel Robbins Show and compete against other Remarkable Women winners from different regions within the United States. Good Luck Syliva!
