The Vulcans Community Awards

Vulcan Park and Museum is searching for 13 citizens whose actions are making a great impact for the fifth annual The Vulcans Community Awards.

Now through July 31, community members have the opportunity to nominate people in the Birmingham metropolitan area. Areas include Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Jefferson, St. Clair, Shelby and Walker. Candidates typically work day-in and day-out to affect change, serve, lead or make a difference in the lives of the people, places and organizations that make up this great city!

The Vulcans honors citizens who exemplify civic pride, leadership and progress in five award categories. The categories include (1) Lifetime Achievement, (2) Newcomer, (3) Hero, (4) Game Changer, and (5) Servant Leadership. Five outstanding citizens will be recognized at the Vulcan level. Only one award will be given for Lifetime Achievement. Special Spear awards will be given in the other for aforementioned categories.

Nominations are accepted online and will be reviewed by an independent panel. Honorees will receive award notification in mid-August. Honorees will receive an invitation to be honored at the annual dinner on Nov. 1 at The Club.

President and CEO of Vulcan Park Foundation Darlene Negrotto is looking for nominees who have inspired, who have overcome challenges, who have made personal sacrifices, who have vision, and who serve without hesitation.

“There are so many great things happening in the Birmingham area. There a many people who are making these things happen, but who go unnoticed.  Many citizens do not realize the impact these individuals have on the forward progress of our city. So, we established these award five years ago to honor those doing great things,” said Negrotto. “We are turning to the residents and business leaders in our community to enlist your help in nominating your peers. We want to honor them for the work they do, and continue to do, to make the Birmingham metro area a great place for us to live, work, raise our families. Plus, whose efforts have contributed to the vibrancy of the region.”
