Remarkable Women Contest Winner To Be Announced at Homemakers Furniture

Urbandale, IA – WHO 13 Des Moines will announce the local winner of the 2021 Remarkable Women contest on Hello IOWA at Homemakers Furniture in Urbandale on Thursday, April 1, at 11:00 a.m. Four women were nominated by the public and then chosen by WHO to be considered for this honor. Each woman will be interviewed before the finalist is announced.

The contest seeks to recognize the contributions women have made to our nation and local communities through the day-to-day inspiration and leadership they provide. It is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative taking place in over 100 local markets.

As of 3/30, Natalie Montross of Winterset, Pam Danielson of Redfield, and Teresa Choi of Des Moines have been announced as nominees. The final nominee will be announced by WHO during tonight’s 10 p.m. news.

The winner will move on to the semi-finalist round, which divides the local market winners into six regions. The subsequent winner of each region will then move on to the final national round to determine the Nexstar 2021 Remarkable Woman of the Year.

“Homemakers is proud to be a sponsor of the Remarkable Women initiative,” Dave Merschman, Homemakers Furniture President said. “We strive to celebrate and lift up the accomplishments of women in our community, which made supporting this event a natural fit.”
