Washington Area Villages Exchange (WAVE)
Proudly Announces
WAVE Founders Award for Village Excellence
in Programs or Services

 


The Washington Area Villages Exchange is proud to honor its founders, Virginia Hodgkinson, Miriam Kelty, and Andy Mollison, through a new award program.  The award will recognize villages for programs and/or services that are outstanding examples of villages’ contributions to the well-being of older adults in their communities and reflect the founders’ values of inclusivity; collaboration; creative problem-solving; and positive impact on villages, their communities, and the larger village movement. There will be one award for a village with an annual operating budget of under $25,000 and one award for a village with an annual operating budget of $25,000 or more.  
 
All WAVE member villages are eligible to apply. Member villages have paid their 2021 WAVE dues (https://www.wavevillages.org/index.php/dues-and-payments).  A village may only submit one application for a 2022 award. A village may also be nominated by a person not associated with that village. The village program (social, educational, cultural, health, etcetera) or service may be a long-term/permanent activity or may be a special time-limited activity.  Nominations for collaborative efforts should be submitted by or on behalf of the lead village and include all villages that contributed to the project.   
 
The winner in each of the two categories will receive $1000. Winners will be announced at the WAVE Quarterly Meeting, April 18, 2022.  Winners will also benefit from diverse media promotions and will be invited to present programs throughout 2022 on how they conceived, planned, and implemented their project and share other lessons learned.
