Do you know an inspiring Canadian woman in aviation or aerospace? Nominations for the 2023 Northern Lights “Elsie” awards will be opening January 1, 2023.
The Foundation’s national awards program, The Elsie MacGill Awards ("The Elsie") was established in 2009, and each year honours up to eight women for their contributions in specific aviation and aerospace disciplines. Award categories are: Flight Operations, Government, Business, Education, Trailblazer, Engineering and Rising Star.
Through a nomination and judging process honourees are named each year and they are recognized each fall at a gala dinner. The event highlights the honourees’ life history through a combination of visuals, display materials and speakers who have known her throughout her personal and business life.
Nominations open annually January 1 - March 31 (We are accepting nominations in Jan 2023.)
