Red Hat as a company has been an advocate for women in technology and open source and wants to recognize women doing great things around the world. In a bid to recognise this , it has instituted the Women In Open Source Awards .
The 2015 award finalists are chosen for their remarkable contribution to open source, the academic awards being open to women who contribute to open source while enrolled in college or university. These award finalists are some of the best and brightest in the industry and has been chosen carefully by a elite jury from over 100 such nominations received worldwide.
I take great pride in mentioning that I am one of the 5 finalists from over the world.

The final selection for the winner is through public voting. Voting closed on 6th March 2015 and winners shall be announced in the Red Hat Summit to be held in June this year at Boston, USA.
