This submission's references do not show that the subject qualifies for a Wikipedia article—that is, they do not show significant coverage (not just passing mentions) about the subject in published, reliable, secondary sources that are independent of the subject. Before any resubmission, additional references meeting these criteria should be added (see technical help and learn about mistakes to avoid when addressing this issue). If no additional references exist, the subject is not suitable for Wikipedia.

The Hertha Sponer Prize is a scientific prize awarded by the German Physical Society. It was established in 2002 and is awarded annually to an outstanding female physicist. It aims to give public recognition to excellent work by women in science and through that increase the share of women in physics.
