YANKTON, S.D. (KTIV) -

It's award season. The time of year the Grammys and Oscars are given out.

But some awards of a different kind brought folks together in Yankton, South Dakota.

For the fifth year, the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce and Women Community Leaders Committee hosted the Women of Distinction Luncheon.

About 200 people gathered at Mount Marty College to honor women who work to make their community a better place.

Organizers say these women are superstars in their own right.

"I think it's really important because a lot of these women really aren't well known in the community, they work maybe in the kitchen serving the meals, but without them there everyday their services would be missed," Carla Addy, Committee Chair said.

A total of nine women were nominated for the two awards.

Judi O'Connell was named Outstanding Professional and Jane Pugh received the Outstanding Community Service award.
