Hillsborough County Seeks Nominations for Annual Neighborhood Recognition Awards
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Aug. 1, 2019) - Think you belong to one of the best neighborhood associations in the area? Did your homeowners group accomplish a project in 2018 that was a home run? Do you know an individual who has gone above and beyond to make a difference where they live? Give them the attention they deserve by submitting a nomination in Hillsborough County's annual Neighborhood Recognition Awards program.
Nominations are being accepted in 10 categories designed to recognize individuals, groups, and organizations who have enriched the quality of life in neighborhoods through outreach, improvement projects, volunteer work, safety programs, art, partnerships, and board leadership. There's even a category set aside for outstanding contributions by a youth volunteer or youth group.
The deadline for nominations is 5 PM on Friday, Sept. 6.
Neighborhood groups may nominate themselves, other groups, and/or individuals for their efforts to improve the quality of life in unincorporated Hillsborough County, or the cities of Tampa, Plant City, and Temple Terrace. Each nomination should include supporting information, such as samples of promotional material, website links, photographs, news clippings, and letters of support.
The winners will be announced at the 16th Annual Hillsborough County Neighborhoods Conference on Nov. 2 at the Sheraton Tampa East Hotel, 10221 Princess Palm Ave. in Tampa. Winners must be present to accept the awards.
