Healthy Neighborhoods Celebration & Award Ceremony
Using Neighborhood Allies’ Healthy Neighborhoods Framework as the inspiration, the Annual Healthy Neighborhoods Celebration, honors and celebrates examples of exemplary work in the following categories–Market Confidence, Quality of Life, Neighborhood Image, Community Ownership, Equitable Development, and Ally of the Year.
We are currently accepting nominations for the 2018 Healthy Neighborhood Awards. Do you know an organization or individual who is doing exemplary work to create positive impact and build/maintain healthy neighborhoods in Pittsburgh? Nominate them today!
In it’s inaugural year, the event brought together over 150 attendees, ranging from local residents, to nonprofit professionals, to artists and executives at the beautiful Carnegie Museum of Art in Oakland and created a platform for honoring and lifting up the people and organizations who are working hard every day to build healthy neighborhoods across Pittsburgh.
Six awards were given, each accompanied by a short video, highlighting the awardees work and how they are contributing to building Healthy Neighborhoods. In 2017, we also celebrated the 2nd cohort of graduates of our Real Estate Co-Powerment Series with a mini ceremony, and showcased the artists and projects from our Temporary Public Art & Placemaking Program, as part of the celebration event.
