Susanne Bicknese and Troy Leininger of KICD radio station of Spencer accepted the "Spirit of Denim Award" from Rhonda Christensen during the second annual Women in Denim Conference last weekend at the Buena Vista University Siebens Forum. The award is designed to recognize a company, individual, sponsor, or organization that exemplifies the spirit of Women in Denim.
"What makes the world go round are the women in denim," Leininger said as he graciously helped accept the award.
The award nomination read: "This year's honoree has a great spirit - creating opportunity programming and the marketing of quick turn-around programs. They have high visibility and a large listenership. In many counties in northwest Iowa and Minnesota, this organization is a household name and many listeners feel like they are a part of the family. They have helped us make decisions about attending meetings or events, about canceling or postponing a meeting, or promoting an upcoming meeting, especially in the area of agriculture, like the Women in Denim Conference."
Nominations for the 2007 Spirit of Women in Denim Award will be accepted through Jan. 5, 2007. Nominations may be sent to Rhonda K. Christensen, Box 820, Storm Lake, IA, 50588 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
