Middlebury, VT - The Con Hogan Award for Creative, Entrepreneurial Community Leadership continues to seek nominations for its 2016 award. The $15,000 cash award intends to recognize Con Hogan’s life’s work and commitment by encouraging and rewarding mid-career leaders who share his vision of a better Vermont—one that places the highest value on the public good—and who seize the responsibility for making that vision real by using data and measurement, monitoring a plan of action, and making adjustments along the way.
The award honoree will be selected by a committee consisting of individuals who represent a broad range of activities, including: health and human services, the arts, government service, early care and education, agriculture, and civic duty. He or she will have demonstrated the following characteristics: a track record of making a difference, focus on data-driven results, community connection, generosity, and enthusiasm. The honoree must be an individual who is a Vermont resident and has not previously received the award.
