CINCINNATI - Do you know someone who works tirelessly to make a difference in the lives of children? Cincinnati Museum Center wants to honor them at our Sixth Annual Duke Energy Children's Museum Difference Maker Awards dinner on Nov. 7. But, you have to nominate them first!
The Difference Maker program recognizes our community's unsung heroes-the grandmothers and foster parents, the volunteers and the small community organizations, the teenagers and budding child advocates-along with the powerhouse agencies and individuals who make the Greater Cincinnati region a better place for children.
We are now accepting nominations in the following categories: Youth (17 and younger), adult - volunteer, adult - professional, business/for-profit, non-profit organization/community social service organization. We're looking for widespread community help in identifying and nominating those unsung heroes who share Duke Energy Children's Museum focus to better the lives of children in our community. Since the original Difference Maker Awards in 2008, we've recognized more than 150 fantastic nominees!
Please push out this link, www.cincymuseum.org/Difference-Maker, and help encourage nominations by July 1. You can also help spread the word by sharing this link on social media outlets!
