The Wake Forest Human Relations Council (HRC) will accept youth and adult nominations for the ninth annual Good Neighbor of the Year Award through Friday, Aug. 31. 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 categories – adult and youth between the ages of 13 and 18. To qualify, a nominee must be a Wake Forest resident who has made a significant contribution to the community between Sept. 1, 2017, and Aug. 31, 2018. Employees of the Town of Wake Forest are not eligible.
The online nomination form is available on the Town’s website at www.wakeforestnc.gov/goodneighborday.aspx. Completed nomination forms must be submitted by 5 p.m. Friday, 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 one youth and one adult winner during this year’s Good Neighbor Day on Saturday, Sept. 15. The event will take place from 1-4 p.m. at E. Carroll Joyner Park, 701 Harris Road.
