Engaging the public for public good.

Civility Awards

The Civility Awards Acknowledge Those Who Take the High Road

The Civility Awards honor people, organizations, and businesses working across differences to solve problems. Every day, in every community, people are working to build bridges, engage in public policy, and tackle the big issues we face in society. Often, this work goes unnoticed. We created the Civility Awards to make sure it doesn’t.

The award criteria stress respect, integrity, engagement, inclusiveness, objectivity and common ground.
