This Year’s Remarkable Woman to Be Announced at Homemakers Furniture

Furniture World News Desk on 4/4/2022

The winner of the Remarkable Women initiative, announced by WHO 13 Des Moines, will take place on Hello IOWA at Homemakers Furniture in Urbandale on Monday, April 4. Local women were nominated by the public, and four were then chosen by WHO 13 as finalists. Each woman will be interviewed before the finalist is announced.


This initiative 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 program taking place in over 100 local markets.


As of March 23, Renee Hardman, Melissa Vine, and Anne Bacon have been announced as nominees. The final nominee will be announced by WHO 13 on March 29 at 10 p.m.


The winner will move on to the semi-finalist round, which divides the local market winners into seven regions. The subsequent winner of each region will then move on to the final national round to determine the Nexstar 2022 Remarkable Woman of the Year, which will be announced on April 9 during the Remarkable Women Special.


"We're passionate about women's growth and achievement at Homemakers. We love that this program recognizes women who are making a difference not only in their community but also in the lives of others," said Community Engagement Manager, Kelsey Merschman.
