Remarkable Women of Siouxland

KCAU 9 wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Leading up to International Women’s Day, KCAU 9 will highlight four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

One woman will be named Siouxland’s Woman of the Year. From the more than 100 local winners, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!

KCAU 9’s Remarkable Women of Siouxland winner is Monica Venesky
