Deadline:  June 30, 2020

The Minnesota REALTORS is launching a new award in 2020.  The Good Neighbor Award will recognize a REALTOR member who makes a positive impact on their community through their volunteer involvement with an organization.  This annual award seeks to highlight the individual(s) within the real estate community who give so much of their time and talents to organizations that seek to improve the lives of those living in our great state of Minnesota.

We are asking you to nominate yourself or someone you know for this award.  The recipient will receive a $1,000 one-time award to the 501(c)3 non-profit with which the Minnesota Good Neighbor is involved.

Nominations will be accepted until June 30, 2020 and the recipient will be announced at the UNITE State Convention in September in St. Cloud!

5.  The award is intended to recognize individual contributions, not association-or-company-wide efforts.  However, if an individual can be singled out as instrumental to the success of a group effort, he or she is eligible.  If the achievements of two people (such as a married couple or co-founders of an organization) abosolutely cannot be separated, they can enter as a pair and their entry will be considered as one.

7.  Nominees should be able to document the results of their individual involvement through published reports and/or testimonials from the organization they served or the people they helped.
