EFWA is pleased to announce that our 2020 recipients have been selected, the candidates have been notified and the awards have been sent. Once again, we had a great turn-out of qualified and deserving candidates. The selection process was difficult for our committee, as we narrowed the choices down. We would love to be able to award more, and will be gearing our future fundraising towards those efforts.
