In March of 2018, CWHF premiered a film series featuring 5 Inductees on Rocky Mountain PBS. The category for Best Music Composition/Arrangement was awarded to CWHF for the episode, “Saving the Soul of Denver” featuring CWHF Inductee Dana Crawford, who is a visionary preservationist and developer who worked to preserve historic downtown Denver. The Hall gives thanks and gratitude to former Video Chair Betty Heid, Lisa Downing, composer and pianist, Rebecca Martinez, and Enchanted Road Productions: Rick Higgins and Bill Ranshaw who were also involved and awarded in this endeavor!

This is our new blog, fresh off the press! We hope to share many stories and contribute to the achievement of the aspirations & dreams of girls and women in Colorado and beyond. The CWHF mission is to inspire by celebrating and sharing the enduring contributions of Colorado’s distinctive women. To achieve this, the Hall educates the people of Colorado about the stories of the women who shaped our state and the nation’s history with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. Their talents, skills, struggles, and contributions form a legacy that the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame is dedicated to protecting. The women inducted into the Hall of Fame come from diverse backgrounds such as pioneers to politicians, educators to entrepreneurs, minority leaders to lawyers and more, or have been an integral part of Denver and Colorado culture, or have made a major impact on the lives of others and helped to elevate the status of women and girls in our state, our nation, and around the world.
