Know someone in your community who contributes in a unique way? You can nominate them for an award as part of Madrona’s annual Neighborhood Appreciation Day event, slated for mid-March (official date TBA). Co-hosted by the Madrona Community Council and Madrona K-8 in conjunction with the City of Seattle, it recognizes neighbors for the positive impact they have on those around them.
You can nominate a neighbor by emailing MCC co-VP Paige Smith ([email protected]) with a few sentences describing your nominee and how they contribute to the Madrona community.
There are four award categories – you can learn more about previous winners by visiting the MCC webpage for Neighborhood Appreciation Day.
- The Nora Award: Named in honor of Madrona activist Nora Wood, this award is given to a Madrona resident who, over time and in ways both large and small, has left a personal mark on the community.
- The Local Hero Award: Given to a Madrona resident for an act of heroism, singular kindness or generosity.
- The Tyrone Love Unsung Hero Award: Given to a Madrona resident for service to others in the larger community.
- The Madrona Resident for Life Award: Bestowed upon a long-time, active resident who has left Madrona but remains dearly missed.
