Thank you for nominating!
Duke Energy Children's Museum's Difference Makers Celebration honors youth, adults, businesses and agencies that share our focus to better the lives of children in our community. Difference Makers go out of their way to enact significant change in the community. They distinguish themselves from others by their dedication and impact.
We want to honor the unsung heroes – the grandmothers and foster parents, the volunteers and community organizations, the teenagers and budding child advocates – along with the businesses and professionals who make the Greater Cincinnati region a better place for children.
Past honorees were nominated for organizing a benefit concert to support Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center’s Surviving the Teens Program; helping pregnant and parenting teens to raise children while continuing to pursue their dreams; placing 3D printers in Boys and Girls Clubs across the country; and much more.
We have accepted nominations in the following categories:
- Youth – under 18 years of age
- Adult Volunteer – unpaid individuals
- Adult Professional – paid professionals
- Business – for-profit organizations
- Non-profit Organization
- Youth & School Group
Nominees will be recognized for their hard work and dedication at the tenth annual Difference Makers Awards in February 2018. During the event, we’ll share the nominees’ inspiring stores and celebrate the strides they’ve taken to better the lives of the children in the Greater Cincinnati region. Nominees will be able to meet their fellow Difference Makers during the family-friendly event and encourage others to become further engaged in their community.
