Do you have a woman in your life who inspires you? WOW Air wants to know about her.

Through March 8, those in the U.S. can nominate a special woman in their life as part of a special sweepstakes, whether she’s your mom, your teacher, or any woman in your community who inspires you. All participants must also include the hashtag #wowwoman and tag @wowair so the airline can find your story.

The nomination deadline is Friday, March 8 at 11:59 a.m. UTC.

On March 8, International Women’s Day, WOW Air will repost the most inspirational and touching stories about to its own social media accounts. The inspirational woman that you nominate will also receive two vouchers to any WOW Air destination of her choice. Hopefully, she’ll take you along too.

Iceland, where WOW Air was founded, is known for being first in the world for gender equality and is the first country to have a female president, Vigdís Finnbogadóttir, elected in 1980 and served four consecutive terms. Katrín Jakobsdóttir, the current Prime Minister, is the second woman to take the office in Iceland’s history.

WOW Air hopes this contest will celebrate the women who positively impact the lives of those around them.
