Posted April 25, 2017 at 2:28 PM

The Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference, Inc. (VSNC, Inc.) Planning Committee is delighted to announce the opening of the 2017 Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference Awards Program, recognizing 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. The following four (4) NEIGHBORHOOD AWARD categories are available for entries:

  • Project of the Year
  • Advocate of the Year
  • Youth Individual Effort of the Year
  • Youth Group Effort of the Year

Each year award nominations are solicited to recognize the commitment of our Commonwealth’s neighborhoods and/or individuals who have tirelessly volunteered their time and energy into making their neighborhoods places they are proud to call home. These awards have been presented since 2000 as a collective “thank you” to the nominated neighborhoods and individuals, and are the only statewide awards given on an ongoing basis to neighborhood organizations and individuals for their neighborhood self-help initiatives.

To be considered, nominees must mail/postmark their completed application by the Friday, July 7, 2017 deadline.

All award nominees are encouraged to register to attend the 18th Annual Virginia Statewide Neighborhood Conference being held in Short Pump, VA on September 22-23, 2017. This year’s conference theme is ‘Building Coalitions to Create Healthy, Vibrant Communities’. During the Awards Luncheon being held on Saturday, September 23, 2017, all award finalists and winners will be announced. In addition, the award winners of each category will be asked to provide a 5-minute presentation on their successful award submission during the ceremony.
