Neighborhood Preservation Summit Awards

The sponsors and organizers of the Third Annual Memphis Neighborhood Preservation Summit would like to recognize some exceptional individuals and projects in our neighborhood that have made a meaningful, sustained, and positive difference in the fight against property vacancy and abandonment.

Specifically, we are asking the public to nominate potential honorees in four categories:

  1. Leadership Impact Award. An individual who has consistently performed exceptional work over a number of years to successfully and sustainably reduce blight in our community.
  2. Grassroots Leader of the Year. An individual working at the neighborhood level who’s efforts are reducing blight in our community.
  3. Residential Property of the Year. A single-family home, duplex, apartment building, or other residential dwelling that is being maintained at a very high level and whose aesthetics are improving the quality of life throughout the rest of the neighborhood.
  4. Commercial Property of the Year. A commercial building, such as a retail storefront, or office building, that is making a clear and positive difference to the aesthetics, livability, and safety in its area.

You will be asked to select from one of these four categories and submit as much information as you have, including photographs or other supporting material, to make your case. The award submission portal will close on August 15, the sponsors and steering committee of the Neighborhood Preservation Summit will make their selections, and award recipients will be notified September 1.

Honorees will be recognized during an awards ceremony at the Neighborhood Preservation Summit, on October 19, 2018 at Neighborhood Christian Center located at 785 Jackson Ave, Memphis, TN 38107

You can submit your nominations by following the link below to the submission form. Please make sure you have the contact information (a verified phone number and email address) of the party being nominated.
