Each year Meridian recognizes two Outstanding Petroleum Women in conjunction with our

Annual Women in Petroleum event.

Nomination for the 2018 Outstanding Petroleum Woman Award is open! The nomination period closes May 18, 2018.


The woman must be either an owner or active employee of a family-owned, privately held, petroleum marketing company. Nominees will be judged by an independent panel of business women based on a short explanation of “why this woman deserves to be nominated”. Each nominee will be notified that they have been nominated via email. The Top 10 nominees will receive a lovely certificate and both winners will be recognized at the Women in Petroleum event dinner.

The nomination may be for outstanding performance within a company, overcoming an unusual hardship, or general service to the petroleum industry just to name a few qualifying ideas. We are not putting restrictions on the nominations as we believe there will be compelling “whys” too numerous to suggest. There will be one winner in each of the owner and non-owner categories. Who do you know that is an Outstanding Petroleum Woman?
