    Virginia Neighborhood Awards

    Recognizing Neighborhoods from Across the State

     The Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference (VSNC) Awards Program recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding neighborhood organizations and civic individuals from across the Commonwealth who work tirelessly to enhance the quality of life in their communities. Each year nominations are solicited to recognize the commitment of our Commonwealth’s neighborhoods and/or individuals who have diligently volunteered their time and energy into making their neighborhoods places they are proud to call home.

    The Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Awards Program offers the only statewide awards given on an ongoing basis to neighborhood organizations and individuals for neighborhood self-help initiatives. The annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Awards Program provides a collective “thank you” to these nominated neighborhoods and individuals.

    The following four (4) NEIGHBORHOOD AWARD categories are available for recognition:

    1. PROJECT OF THE YEAR: Effort that has made a significant impact on a neighborhood. This project can be the work of an individual or group.
    2. ADVOCATE OF THE YEAR: Individual who has had a significant impact on their community during the past year. Individuals who have participated in one or multiple projects/roles are eligible. Individuals whose service is defined by its longevity are most appropriate for this award.
    3. YOUTH INDIVIDUAL EFFORT OF THE YEAR: Effort of an individual youth that has made a significant impact or contribution on their community during the past year.
    4. YOUTH GROUP EFFORT OF THE YEAR: Effort of a youth group that has made a significant impact or contribution on their community during the past year
    To be considered, nominees must submit a completed 2014 Awards Program Application by the August 1, 2014 deadline. For your convenience a 2014 VSNC Award Nomination form has been created that can be completed and submitted online.

    All award nominees are encouraged to register to attend the 15th Annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference hosted in Lynchburg, VA on September 18-19, 2014. During the 2014 Awards Program, all award finalists and winners will be featured and announced. The first place award winners of each category will be asked to provide a 5-minute presentation on their successful award submission during the ceremony.
