Recognize our difference makers – Spirit of Snohomish County Award nominations now being accepted

(Everett, WA) – Every day, our community is changed by difference makers – people uniting for the common good. These difference makers are as diverse as their good deeds themselves: public figures and ordinary good Samaritans, senior citizens and seniors in high school, and individuals and corporations.
United Way of Snohomish County is accepting nominations for Spirit of Snohomish County Awards in four categories: Adult, Youth, Labor and Community Partner. Award winners will be recognized for their efforts to advance the common good and improve the lives of people in Snohomish County.  They must also demonstrate a broad and deep commitment to the community.
Award winners will be honored at the annual Spirit of Snohomish County Breakfast, on Sept. 25 at Tulalip Resort Casino.
Nomination forms and criteria can be found online at http://www.uwsc.org/spiritnominate.php and are due Friday, June 7.
You may submit your nominations online or download the forms and mail them to Spirit of Snohomish County Awards; United Way of Snohomish County; 3120 McDougall Avenue, Ste. 200; Everett, WA 98201. You can also submit nominations by fax to 425.374.5555 or via email to events@uwsc.org.
Last year’s winners were Dominick Juarez (youth); Mary Jane Brell Vujovic (adult); Allyn Triezenberg (labor), Campbell’s StockPot (community partner) and the Bob Smith Family (Reeves/Sievers Founders’ Award). All of the nominations for the different awards – except the Reeves/Sievers Founders’ Award, which recognizes a lifetime of commitment to our community – are considered by a panel of volunteers.
