Our friends over at Crosscut, Seattle's nonprofit, independant online news organization that has brilliant coverage on the mayoral race and other civic-related items, has launched its first-ever Courage Awards. And it's looking for nominees. Here's the gist:
Got Courage? Crosscut launched its first annual Courage Awards in June! The Awards will honor courageous individuals who took a risk to successfully break gridlock; innovated despite criticism; exhibited uncommon, selfless leadership; followed data and best practices even though custom and tradition may say otherwise; and inspired and instructed others in public service, business and cultural leadership.
To nominate one or more people for the Crosscut Courage Awards, email CourageAwards@Crosscut.com with the name of your nominee and a paragraph describing the reason for their nomination. Nominations must be received by July 30. Honorees will be chosen by the Crosscut board and honored at a breakfast on October 31 at Bell Harbor.
