Do you know a family member, friend or neighbor who helps to enhance your neighborhood? Maybe they have performed a good deed or provided a service that you feel deserves recognition. You can honor them with a nomination for the "Good Neighbor of the Year" Award.
The "Good Neighbor of the Year" award recognizes the ongoing efforts of Wake Forest residents who are making contributions to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods. The program is designed to honor those who make a difference in our community without seeking or receiving recognition for their service. Nominees are sought in two divisions: adult and youth (ages 13-18).
The nominee must be a resident of Wake Forest
The nominee must not be employed by the Town of Wake Forest
The nominee must have made a contribution to their community between Sept. 1, 2017 â€“ Aug. 31, 2018
Nominations must be received by no later than Aug. 31, 2018
The Wake Forest Human Relations Council will select the winners from the pool of candidates. However, all finalists will be honored during Good Neighbor Day on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018. The event will take place at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.
The "Good Neighbor of the Year" award is the town's way of recognizing the residents who are committed to preserving, maintaining and improving the quality of life in their neighborhoods and our community. Your assistance in honoring these residents is greatly appreciated!
