There's still time to nominate someone for the League of Railway Industry Women's (LRIW) 2017 Outstanding Woman of the Year Award.

Co-sponsored by Progressive Railroading, the award is presented annually to a woman who has made significant contributions to the rail industry through leadership, dedication and vision. Women working in the North American rail industry are eligible to receive the award.

This year's award will be presented at Railway Interchange 2017, which will be held Sept. 17-20 in Indianapolis.

Nomination criteria and the official nomination form can be downloaded from the LRIW website until July 31.

Last year, the Outstanding Woman of the Year Award was presented to Anamaria Bonilla, assistant chief engineer of track and structures at MTA Metro-North Railroad.
