The 2021 Community Vision Awards will be the second annual opportunity to recognize the community helpers of the greater Newport area. This year’s awards have been designed with the help of community feedback shared during the 2020 Awards.

Created by the Vision 2040 Advisory Committee and made possible by a community building grant from the Ford Family Foundation, these awards seek community nominations of outstanding organizations and individuals who are forwarding the Vision 2040 Community Plan for the Future, which can be viewed online at https://tinyurl.com/2v5sk6a5.

Winners will be announced at an in-person, hybrid, or live virtual ceremony in the third week of March 2022. Event details and community opportunities to participate will be finalized and announced in February to accommodate potential shifts in COVID restrictions.

Nomination methods:

• Online Nomination — a form found at tinyurl.com/nominatecommunityhelpers2021 includes written, audio and video submission options.

• Request a paper nomination form: email l.palotas@newportoregon.gov or call 541-270-9970.

The nomination deadline is Jan. 7, 2022 at 5 p.m.
