Call for Nominations: Vigor Awards International 2018

Deadline (For the Toronto event): 1 August 2018

Nominations are open for Vigor Awards International 2018 to celebrate, honour, and acknowledge individuals who have made impact in the world by bringing positive changes to, improving, encouraging or empowering other people’s lives.

Vigor Awards International seeks to honor those who ordinarily would not receive recognition or be publicly appreciated for their selfless efforts to enhance the lives of people around them, through their unrewarded volunteering or humanitarian work, or by their acts of valor in extraordinary circumstances.

The award aims to inspire others to bring people together in communities to promote the empowerment of other people and to effect social change through the celebration of unsung heroes in all areas of life.

What Is a Vigor Awards Nominee?

You’re probably asking yourself this question, and wondering if anyone you know might qualify to be nominated for a Vigor Award. Do you know anyone who exemplifies these qualities? If so, let them know right away!

  • Someone who meets a need, reacts in the moment, or feels strongly about some injustice in the world;
  • who faithfully serves one or more people or the community as a whole;
  • whose service or sacrifice involves a risk to their own physical comfort, social stature, or quality of life; and
  • who initiated this activity without the expectation of material gain.
  • If you think others will be inspired by their story, then nominate them today.

They want to tell the world about them!
