    EAST HANOVER, N.J., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- This past
 weekend, 100 women whose everyday actions make an extraordinary impact on
 those around them were honored as the winners of the first-ever Nabisco 100
 Calorie Packs "Celebrating 100 Extraordinary Women" contest. The contest
 launched in February and asked people to nominate themselves or a woman
 they know, in 100 words or less, whose everyday work benefits her family or
 local community in an extraordinary way. It generated thousands of entries
 nationwide.
 
     "From helping military widows to raising money in support of ill
 children, it was amazing to learn what women in this country do to initiate
 positive changes in their communities and the lives of others," says
 Sheldon Cummings, senior brand manager for Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs.
 "Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs is privileged to honor these unique women in a
 way that will hopefully inspire others."
 
     The Star Treatment
 
     In October, America will get to "meet" these extraordinary women when a
 two-page spread featuring them will appear across national Time Inc.
 magazines, including PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly, In Style, Real Simple,
 Cooking Light and Health.
 
     The photo shoot for the spread took place during an extraordinary
 evening celebration of the selected women at the popular X BAR in Los
 Angeles. Prior to that, the women enjoyed an afternoon at one of the
 nation's most "extraordinary" events -- the Los Angeles Film Festival.
 There, they attended a private VIP screening and Q&A of the new independent
 women's interest film "Phoebe in Wonderland," with stars Elle Fanning
 (Dakota Fanning's younger sister) in her feature film debut, Bill Pullman
 and writer-director Daniel Barnz. Scheduled for theatrical release this
 fall which coincides with the timing of the Time Inc. magazine spreads, the
 film also stars Felicity Huffman, Patricia Clarkson and Campbell Scott.
