People's Choice Award

August 30, 2012

The Community Foundation invites the public to nominate an unsung hero (or a team of two) who gives generously and unselfishly of their time and talents to make Washington County a better place to live.

Judges will consider length of service of nominees, lifelong commitment to volunteerism, and the recommendations of organizations served. Multiple nominations for the same individual are discouraged, but letters of support for the same nominee are welcome. Three winners will be chosen to be honored at the 13th annual People’s Choice Award Dinner Tuesday, Nov. 13.

A $5,000 endowment will be established at the Community Foundation on behalf of each winner and will benefit the nonprofit organization of their choice. Nominations must be received by 4 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 1, to be eligible for consideration. Call the Community Foundation at 301-745-5210 with any questions. To see a list of previous winners, go to
