In honor of Missouri Good Neighbor Week, we want to acknowledge neighbors who go above and beyond to be an engaged neighbor. To find the best engaged neighbors among us, we need for nominations for the Missouri Engaged Neighbor Award!
 
All nominee’s will receive a small gift as a token of appreciation for their commitment to making their neighborhoods a great place to live. Winners of the Missouri Engaged Neighbor Award will be selected in participating counties and at a statewide level. Individual counties will have locally sponsored prizes. Statewide winners will receive a $200 gift card. Three statewide winners will be selected.
 
Individuals can nominate a person in their county for the "Engaged Neighbor of the Year" award. Preference will be shown to nominees who are engaged neighbors or neighborhood connectors –- meaning they connect with others through events, service, or social interaction.
 
Eligibility and criteria include:
·        Individual nominees must reside in the county that is honoring them;
·        Individuals may not self-nominate for this award;
·        Nominees may not be compensated for the service described in the nominations; and
·        Elected officials may not participate as nominees.
