Spirit Award

2018 Spirit Award Nominations Are Open


Do you know someone in our community that makes a difference in the lives of others? If so, we want to hear about them!

Each year the Lexington Forum recognizes an individual that has made a meaningful change in the Bluegrass by giving back to the community through volunteerism. The criteria of this award are based solely on the Nominee’s caring contributions to the community. You do not need to be a Lexington Forum member to nominate, or be nominated. Please take a few minutes and think about who you know that deserves to be acknowledge for their service to others.

The chosen recipient will be honored at the 2018 State of the Merged Government Address on January 16, 2018.
