Call for nominations - PDD South Community Leadership Awards

The Persons with Developmental Disabilities South Region (PDD South) is currently looking for nominees for the PDD South Community Leadership Awards.

PDD South will recognize individuals, families, businesses and organizations for their actions to promote community inclusion and improve the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities. PDD South is currently seeking nominations in five award categories: self-advocacy, individual leadership, community citizenship, community disability service sector leadership, and family leadership.

The recipients of the PDD South Region Awards are automatically nominated for the corresponding provincial award. The provincial award winners will be announced and recognized at a date that is still to be determined.

Nominations will be accepted until June 13, 2014, with the award winners being announced and recognized at an event later in the spring. Nominees must be over 18 years of age and reside within the South Region.

The Self-Advocacy Award recognizes an adult with a developmental disability whose actions have made communities a more welcoming place for people with developmental disabilities.

The Individual Leadership Award recognizes an adult with a developmental disability who, through their achievements, has inspired others with developmental disabilities to become community leaders.

The Community Citizenship Award recognizes community members, businesses or organizations that have demonstrated leadership in creating communities that welcome adults with developmental disabilities as participating citizens.

The You Made A Difference Award recognizes an individual in the Community Disabilities Service Sector that has introduced innovative or best practice strategies that have improved the delivery of services for adults with developmental disabilities. This improvement could be related to personal outcomes for an individual; development of strategies that have proven effective in connecting individuals in community and being as independent as possible; and/or development of organizational approaches that improve effectiveness and efficiency of services to adults with developmental disabilities.

The Sharon Rowntree Family Leadership Award recognizes a family who has demonstrated leadership in developing welcoming communities.
