Nominations are now being accepted for the First 5 Riverside (F5R) Champion for Children Award. The nomination form and guidelines are available online at www.First5Riverside.org. Entries will be accepted until Nov. 1.
The Champion for Children Award was created to honor and bring awareness to people and organizations whose leadership and advocacy embody the vision of F5R, where all children in Riverside County are healthy and thrive in supportive, nurturing, and loving environments and enter school ready to learn and embrace lifelong learning.
Nominees must currently be living and/or working in Riverside County for at least two years. The recipient selected will have achievements that align with F5R strategic goals, including quality early learning, comprehensive health and development, and resilient families.
The award will be presented by the Riverside County Children and Families Commission in early 2020. To recognize the recipient, F5R will sponsor $1,000 toward a community event of the recipient’s choosing during the Week of the Young Child in April 2020. The recipient will also receive a plaque and be recognized on the F5R website and social media channels.
