Once again it’s time to think about nominations for Kansas City’s Good Neighbor Award.

Each year, the city of Kansas City recognizes citizens who take pride in where they live and those who exhibit the traits of being friendly, helpful, respectful and clean, to name a few.

The purpose of the award is to provide an incentive to engage the citizens of Kansas City to take ownership and invest their time and skills into their community. Neighbors looking after each other provide a sense of community that creates synergy for the city of Kansas City.

Last year, six Historic Northeast residents earned the honor.

Criteria for the award include:

•The individual must not be paid for the service or action demonstrated.

•The nominee must demonstrate an on-going spirit of compassion and helpfulness to his/her neighbors.

•Must be a resident of Kansas City, Mo.

To nominate, a neighbor, call the 3-1-1 Action Center, (816) 513-1313, or send an e-mail to ncs@kcmo.org or actioncenter@kcmo.org explaining why your neighbor should receive this title.  All residents of Kansas City, Mo., are eligible to nominate and be nominated. In the e-mail subject line please type: “Good Neighbor Award Nomination.”

The application should detail your neighbor’s commitment to the environment, community, neighbors, and/or preserving the community for future generations. Be certain to include both your and his/her name, address and phone number.

All nominations must be received before Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2013.

The Neighborhood Services Division will review the letters and make the selections. Selected individuals will be recognized at the Kansas City United Against Crime Event, Tuesday, Oct. 1.
