The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency chronicles the adventures of Precious Ramotswe, a heroine who proves that with the right dose of confidence and determination, anything is possible. Precious truly embodies the characteristics that a No. 1 Lady possesses – she is a leader who is confident, independent, compassionate, optimistic, empowered, determined, and inspirational.
To celebrate the premiere of The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency on March 29th, HBO is partnering with the Botswana Tourism Board and the YWCA to recognize and celebrate inspiring women across the US through the No. 1 Ladies’ Contest.
To enter, simply submit a nomination that tells us how you or your No. 1 Lady inspires, educates or empowers women at home, work, or within your community. You will be asked to identify your nominee’s “No. 1 Quality,” and share a story (of no more than 300 words) that illustrates how your nominee embodies that quality.
Entrants will be judged on the following criteria:
1. Relevance to contest theme
