The following is from WFOP’s Cathryn Cofell.
Do you know someone who unselfishly gives of their time and talent to help others in our community? Then nominate him or her for one of eight different Celebrating Our Volunteers awards.
One in particular aligns with those of you on my poetry mailing list — the Hanns Kretzschmar Award for Excellence in the Arts:
Hanns Kretzschmar Award for Excellence in the Arts
Sponsored by Thrivent Financial For Lutherans
Recognizes an individual or organization for leadership and service to Fox Cities arts organizations and activities; for long-standing commitment to the Fox Cities arts community; and for noteworthy involvement in developing and promoting arts within the community.
The nomination deadline is Tuesday, February 11, 2014. Nominations will then be sent to each respective award sponsor for review. Winners will be selected by February 28, 2014. If your nominee is selected as a winner, you will be notified by phone. All other nominators will receive a letter listing the award recipients.
Please note that if your nominee is selected he/she must be available on May 6 to attend the Celebrating Our Volunteers awards gala.
Nominees must reside in or do the majority of their volunteer work in Outagamie, Calumet, Waupaca or Northern Winnebago counties.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have some funding flowing to POETRY?? FYI that Ellen Kort did receive the award back in 2001; she was an obvious first choice for me, but previous recipients are not eligible. 😦
