HILLTOP HERO AWARDS
Please join the Hilltop Business Association and the Hilltop Street Fair, as we honor our Hilltop heroes. Throughout the Hilltop community there are seemingly ordinary people who have touched our lives through their selfless acts of volunteer service.
These heroes may have helped improve a neighborhood, save a life, performed an extraordinary act of compassion, or have demonstrated an exceptional spirit of giving. This year we will honor 3 different categories of heroes plus 5 special mention heroes in our community at the Hilltop Street Fair on August 23, 2014. (See Nomination Form, page 3)
Purpose of Awards: To recognize individuals, organizations and businesses that have made significant positive impacts on the Hilltop community and neighborhoods. Award nominees can include individuals, organizations and/or businesses that have completed actions that have brought measurable or observable improvement or betterment to neighborhood areas of Hilltop or to all of Hilltop. These actions have somehow improved the livability and friendliness of the area.
Mission of Awards Ceremony: to honor individuals whose volunteer actions show a long-term intention for improving the Hilltop community and to inspire them to continue their interest in Hilltop.
Examples of heroic actions: include things like leadership, outreach, organizational development, parks/playgrounds, green space, nature areas, individual home improvements or changes to laws, regulations or attitudes that enhance the livability of neighborhoods (i.e. zoning changes, paving streets, density issues, flood control, neighbor relations).
