Virginia Neighborhood Awards
Recognizing Neighborhoods from Across the State
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
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.
