Nominations open for annual awards ceremony

The Community Impact Network is thrilled to present its highly anticipated second annual awards celebration event, "A Night with the Stars." This extraordinary occasion is dedicated to recognizing and honoring the invaluable contributions of direct service providers in the 24:1. These remarkable individuals are the unsung heroes who tirelessly work day in and day out, forging genuine connections with the residents of the 24:1 community.

The spotlight will exclusively focus on these exceptional frontline heroes. It won't be a night to discuss the organizations they represent, the executives who lead them or the boards that govern them. Instead, it will be an evening dedicated to celebrating and shining a light on the individuals who are the true luminaries of service in the 24:1 community. Their dedication and compassion are the driving forces behind positive change, and the Community Impact Network is excited to acknowledge their outstanding efforts.

Awards nomination criteria

Community members and organizations in the 24:1 will have the opportunity to nominate any outstanding employee or volunteers within the categories listed below. The Network’s goal is to ensure that each of the following awards is presented to deserving individuals who provide direct, face-to-face services within the 24:1 community:

  • Listening Award: Recipients of the Learning Award are champions of knowledge and personal growth. These individuals demonstrate an extraordinary dedication to engaging with the community and actively listening to those they serve.
  • Teamwork Award: The Teamwork Award is awarded to individuals who demonstrate the ability to seek out and engage in innovative collaborations with other service providers, no matter how "small" the collaboration may be.
  • Solutions Award: The Solutions Award pays tribute to an individual who has crafted unique, creative or unorthodox solutions to challenges that you, your organization or those you serve were facing.
