There are specific awards for rural Minnesota. I know there are remarkable people working in broadband expansion and adoption. If you know someone you should nominate them to the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits award…
Do you know of someone doing remarkable work on behalf of Minnesota and it’s residents? Someone whose impact in their community has far outweighed the recognition they’ve received?
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, in partnership with The McKnight Foundation, invites you to nominate that someone for the 2016 Virginia McKnight Binger Unsung Hero Awards. The Unsung Hero Awards recognize individuals who have had a significant impact on the state of Minnesota and its communities, and yet have not been widely recognized in the past.
Four Minnesotans (two from the Twin Cities metro and two from Greater Minnesota) will each receive $10,000 in recognition of the significant impact they have had on the state and will be publicly celebrated at MCN’s 2016 Annual Conference.
Nominations are currently being accepted with an application deadline of Thursday, May 26. Eligibility and criteria details are also available online.
