Through Thursday, Aug. 31, the Wake Forest Human Relations Council is soliciting youth and adult nominations for the eighth annual Good Neighbor of the Year Award. The award recognizes Wake Forest residents who work to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods without seeking recognition for their efforts.
Nominees are sought in two divisions: adult and youth between the ages of 13 and 18. In order to qualify a nominee must be a Wake Forest resident who has made a significant contribution to the community between Sept. 1, 2016, and Aug. 31, 2017. Employees of the Town of Wake Forest are not eligible.
Nominations forms are available at the Wake Forest Town Hall on Brooks Street and may be downloaded at www.wakeforestnc.gov/goodneighborday.aspx. Completed forms may be mailed to Town of Wake Forest, c/o Virginia Jones, 301 S. Brooks St., Wake Forest, NC 27587; emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org; or submitted via fax to 919-435-9497. All nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31.
Nominations forms must include the names of both the nominator and the nominee, along with a narrative of 400 words or less describing why the nominee is deserving of the Good Neighbor of the Year Award.
Mayor Vivian Jones will present a commemorative plaque to the respective youth and adult winners during this year’s Good Neighbor Day on Saturday, Sept. 16. The event will take place this year for the first time at E. Carroll Joyner Park on Harris from 1 to 4 p.m.
