Women’s Hall of Fame

Russell County Women’s Hall of Fame

The Russell County Women’s Hall of Fame was inaugurated in 2008 by the Russell County Public. The Library sponsors an essay contest where writers identify and sing the praises of women who they think should be included in the Hall of Fame. A panel of judges recommends women that that should be honored with a place in the Hall of Fame. Judges may also award first or second place, or honorable mention for essays submitted.

The names of the women inducted in the Hall of Fame are inscribed in a handmade book, which is displayed in the Lebanon Library during Women’s History Month.  All submitted essays are included in Local History Collection. (Some years, no women are nominated or recommended.)
