Nominate a Vermonter for Con Hogan leadership award
MIDDLEBURY — Nominations are now being accepted for the $15,000 Con Hogan Award for Creative, Entrepreneurial Community Leadership. Initiated in 2015 by the Vermont Community Foundation, the annual award is a tribute to Con Hogan’s life’s work and commitment to public service. The goal of the award is to encourage and reward leaders who share Con’s vision of a better Vermont — one that places the highest value on the public good — who seize the responsibility for making that vision real, and who mentor emerging leaders. The $15,000 award may be spent however the selected individual chooses.
As in the past, the 2019 award will go to an individual selected by a committee representing a broad range of interests and experience including health and human services, the arts, government service, early care and education, agriculture, and civic duty. The individual will have demonstrated the following characteristics: focus on results, using data and measurement to mobilize action, working with people across diverse perspectives, taking risks in pursuit of a vision, and persisting through setbacks.
The awardee must be an individual who is a Vermont resident and has not previously received the award. Previous award recipients are James Baker (2018), Holly Morehouse (2017), Michael Monte (2016), and Ellen Kahler (2015).
Nominations will be accepted through the Vermont Community Foundation’s website until 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, 2019. The award will be presented at a public event on October 2, 2019 in Montpelier. For more information or to submit a nomination visit vermontcf.org/conhoganaward.
