Community Peacemaker Awards Nominations
The Community Peacemaker Awards serve as the standard for acknowledging community activism that promotes collaborative conflict resolution in the Mohawk Valley.
The Peacemaker Program, Inc. will honor a resident of Oneida, Herkimer or Madison Counties with our Community Peacemaker Award.
Additionally, this year we will honor an organization from Oneida, Herkimer or Madison Counties that works to promote peace and collaboration in our community.
Do you know a person or organization that uses innovative and collaborative approaches to help our community become a more peaceful place? This is the time to acknowledge the good service performed all around us. There are people and organizations that are diligently working to solve problems and bring people together. Let us find them, shake their hands and recognize their talents.
Our selection committee will choose one individual, and one organization, from the nominations. The honorees will be recognized at our Community Peacemaker Breakfast on October 9, 2013 and presented artwork designed specifically for The Community Peacemaker award by Michelle Roberts, an acclaimed local artist.
Our 2nd annual Community Peacemakers Award Breakfast will also honor those dedicated individuals who are exceptional all year long, and who make our agency's mission possible. This list includes our specialists; mediators and arbitrators, as well as our CASA, (Court Appointed Special Advocates) CCAP (Child Custody Advocates) and SDMC (Surrogate Decision Making Committee) volunteers. We will also honor particular people, chosen by their peers, from our court system and community that work tirelessly for the good of the Peacemaker Program and their local areas. Reserve space and buy tickets online here.
The selection committee will be looking for nominees that use innovative techniques or ideas that show appreciable change in our community, people who live kind, compassionate and generous lives. For example, the person or organization may have established a mentoring program, created a safe place for children afterschool, established a community discussion panel to bring awareness to their neighborhood issues, planted a community garden, developed a creative fund-raiser, or worked in a peer program that showed improvement in bullying.
Nominations are coming only from the public! If you know a person or business in the Mohawk Valley who helps make this community a more peaceful place, consider nominating them by filling out the online form.
