City calls for Good Neighbor Award nominations
The City of Kansas City, Mo., is accepting nominations for its annual Good Neighbor Award,* which is presented each fall by the Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department.
The award recognizes Kansas City residents who take pride in where they live and who invest their time and skills into their community, either in a leadership role or as a reliable volunteer, watchful resident or set of extra hands.
There are three ways to nominate a Good Neighbor:
Contact the 311 Call Center at 311 or 816-513-1313.
Complete an online nomination form and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Find the form at www.kcmo.org/nhs by choosing the “Good Neighbor Award” link.
Send an email to email@example.com with “Good Neighbor Award’ in the subject line and explain why your neighbor deserves the award.
The nomination deadline is Tuesday, Aug. 6. The nomination should detail the neighbor’s commitment to the environment, community, other neighbors and/or preserving the community for future generations. Include the name, address and phone number of both the nominee and the nominator.
The 2013 Good Neighbor Awards will be given out Tuesday, Oct. 1 at the Kansas City United Against Crime Event. Last year, 31 residents received awards.
