In 2013 the Mayor of Green Bay Wisconsin has established the Mayor’s Leadership Awards. The Awards are intended to recognize the valuable contributions our citizens and community business partners make each year. Each of these awards is intended to recognize how these individual or groups have provided leadership to facilitate dynamic change in our City. The dedication of time and energy in the pursuit of making our community the best it can be are the foundations for these awards.
- Candidates must be a citizen or community business partner in the City of Green Bay Wisconsin.
- Candidates must have demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities and initiatives contributing to lasting benefits in the City of Green Bay in one of the following areas:
- Individual Community Youth Leadership Award: An individual youth that demonstrates out-standing service to the City of Green Bay Wisconsin.
- Advancement of Literacy Award: This award is given to an individual or group of individuals who have made significant contributions to combating illiteracy because reading and success are inextricably linked. And, those who read well and widely throughout their lifetimes are much more likely to achieve success and satisfaction in life.
- Residential Urban Renewal Award: This award is given to an individual or group of individuals who have revitalized substandard, decadent or blighted open areas for residential purposes.
- Environmental Sustainability Award: This award is given to an individual, business or organization that demonstrates environmental leadership, has innovative best practices, and further contributes to the vision of the City of Green Bay being the greenest, healthiest, and most livable city in the nation.
- Investment in the Business Community Award: This award is given to a partner in the Green Bay business community who has helped to build a more resilient community, diverse workplace, and create a more stable future for us all.
- Government Relations Award: This award is to honor individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement, quality and effectiveness of government relations for the good of the Greater Green Bay Area.
The names of the recipients will be submitted to the Extra Mile America Organization as Extra Mile Heroes who will be included on their website, and their names will be sent to the White House as extra-mile change makers whose service truly stands out and deserves to be recognized. The award presentation will be made at the second Council meeting in November.
