UNSUNG HERO AWARDS
February is Parent Recognition Month!
Nominate a parent or caregiver for the 15th annual Unsung Hero Awards
Do you know a parent or caregiver who shows one or more of these strengths?
Ability to bounce back from stress (Parental Resilience)
A strong support system (Social Connections)
Understands their child’s developmental needs (Knowledge of Parenting and Child Development)
Shows empathy and support toward their child’s feelings (Social and Emotional Competence of Children
Not afraid to ask for help or receive help when it’s needed (Concrete Support in Times of Need
Research has found that these family characteristics, called protective factors, reduce stress and promote the well-being of ALL families! When families focus on building their protective factors, they create and draw on natural supports within their families and communities and help their children thrive. We encourage you to nominate a parent who displayed strength while facing adversity, is a role model to other parents, or whose parenting has impressed you. The Unsung Hero Award will recognize 20 parents during February, Parent Recognition Month. Parents are defined as dual parents, single parents, grandparents, foster or adoptive parents.
Please take a moment to think of a parent who has taken that extra step to improve the life of their own family or the lives of those around them and complete the form below, including a paragraph or two explaining why they should be honored. All nominations will be reviewed and carefully selected by the Unsung Hero Committee, which includes past recipients, board, staff, and community members.
All nominations are due by Wednesday, December 15, 2021.
