There are remarkable people and organizations in our community, and it is time to recognize their inspiring work and commitment with the Mayor’s Inspiration Award. The award acknowledges those who have made a significant impact in our community by recognizing contributions in community engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness, diversity, innovation and community impact.
Multiple awards could be given in the categories of youth, individual, organization and special shout-out. Nominations can be submitted online from June 4 through July 13 at Lakewood.org/MayorsAwards
Winners will be selected in August, and an awards ceremony will take place Sept. 10 during Colorado Cities & Towns Week. Mayor Adam Paul looks forward to hearing about the inspirational efforts in our city.
A panel of evaluators made up of city staff and volunteers will review nominations and make recommendations, and Mayor Paul will make the final selection on the winners.
The Mayor’s Inspiration Award’s inaugural year was 2017. Lakewood’s Advisory Commission for an Inclusive Community, which consists of residents who advise City Council on issues important to Lakewood, recommended the creation of the award to acknowledge those having a significant impact in the community. The award program is also carrying forward the values of the All-America City Award that Lakewood won in 2016 and 2011 by recognizing contributions in community engagement, collaboration, inclusiveness, diversity, innovation and community impact.
