2017 Community Connector Award Nominations Now Open

The HealthPath Foundation of Ohio’s Community Connector Award will recognize an individual or pair of individuals who have dedicated their time and efforts to give all Ohioans the opportunity to achieve their fullest health potential. 

(CINCINNATI, February 16, 2017) — The Community Connector Award recognizes an individual or pair of individuals who have dedicated their time and efforts to give all Ohioans the opportunity to achieve their fullest health potential.

In 2012, The HealthPath Foundation of Ohio launched our Community Connections initiative to engage more organizations and people within our service area through grants, community programs, and volunteer opportunities. In this spirit of connecting communities to the resources they need to be healthier, HealthPath has created the Community Connector Award. 


Eligibility for the Community Connector Award

Nominees for the Community Connector Award must:

  • Demonstrate significant service to HealthPath’s 36-county area and result areas of Cavity-Free Kids, Healthy Ohioans, or Safe Elders.
  • If a team of two, work regularly together toward the same goal.
  • Show long-term commitment to connecting Ohioans to the resources and opportunities they need to achieve their fullest health potential. 

Nomination Process

HealthPath Board members, staff, grantees, and community members may nominate a person or team of up to two people for the Community Connector Award. Nominations will be accepted online. The deadline is Wednesday, April 5, 2017.

The nomination will ask for:

  • The nominee’s contact information
  • The nominator’s contact information
  • The HealthPath focus area and counties in which the nominee works
  • A description of the nominee’s work with the community
  • How the nominee has shown a significant commitment to connecting Ohioans to the resources they need to achieve their fullest health potential

Selection Process

HealthPath will create a selection panel to review the nominations and select the award winner. The winner will be notified on April 14, 2017.

Award

The Community Connectors will be honored at the Community Connections Luncheon on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, in Columbus, Ohio. The Community Connector(s) will receive an individual recognition plaque and will designate an operating support grant of $2,500 to the nonprofit organization of their choice. The nonprofit must work in one of HealthPath’s result areas and predominantly serve at least one of HealthPath’s 36 counties.
