Ordinary Extraordinary People Award Banquet

The nominations for the “Ordinary Extraordinary People Award” have been received.  Be looking for updates about the 2021 nominations!

The What and Why of the Ordinary Extraordinary Award Banquet

The Ordinary Extraordinary People Award is about recognizing the “Go Giver” in the Northern Colorado area who gives back to the local community. They make this a better place because of their positive impact on the local community. The nominee volunteers their time, resources, and talent for others in Northern Colorado. This person exemplifies unselfish giving on their own initiative. They must live in Northern Colorado (Wellington to Longmont and Estes to Greeley). They must be impacting the community here in Northern Colorado. You may nominate a business, nonprofit or community leader.  The person goes over and beyond and they are self-motivated to give back to the local community. The person does not need to be a member of Northern Colorado Community.

The process for selecting the honorees is very visible and allows for the biggest impact of input from the community. There is a call out for nominees and anyone may submit a nomination. The only requirement is that the person lives in Northern Colorado and gives back to the Northern Colorado area. After nominations are received then a nominating committee of five people review the nominations. This review is systematic. Then, once it is narrowed down to the top 12 nominations, which consist of six men and six women, then we use Survey Monkey to have a public vote on the top six honorees. At the end, there will be six honorees, three men and three women honorees. We have a beautiful banquet where the honorees are given recognition, gorgeous plaque, and goodie bag.

The honoree must be able to attend the Honoree Banquet on October 4th from 5:30-8 pm at Sunrise Ranch.

Please note: if the person was a honoree in 2018 or 2019 then they will need to wait five years before they can be nominated again. The 2018 honorees were: Craig Secher, Jana Sanchez, Dr. Jane Brewer, Chris and Marilyn Johnson, and Lisa & Eric Adsit. The 2019 honorees were Carrie Thompson, Mary Elizabeth Lenahan, Jason Brabson, Franklin Taggart, Kristin Watts, and Brad Hoopes.


 

Northern Colorado Community is a regional, business networking group.  I offer events anywhere from Fort Collins to Berthoud. The connections are through in person and online connections to get you in front of the professionals you want to meet. Also, I make email introductions for the members to other professionals that result in referrals and business for the members.  Northern Colorado Community was founded five years ago.  My main goal is being a resource and support for small businesses in Northern Colorado.
