3.  Deadline Extended to Honor an Amazing Neighbor
 
Nominations for the Neighbor of the Year will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 2, 2022.
 
Do you know someone who goes the extra mile to make his or her neighborhood a better place? Do you know someone who welcomes new neighbors, volunteers to help those in distress, or works tirelessly to run the neighborhood organization? Is your neighbor the person who shows up to lend a hand at every neighborhood potluck, community cleanup, or neighborhood meeting? 
 
The Diana Conn Good Neighbor of the Year Award is presented annually to a Knoxville resident who — in a spirit of cooperation and commitment to inclusive community — has devoted time and talent in service to his or her neighbors and neighborhood. The award is meant to honor someone who makes a positive contribution at the neighborhood level without seeking recognition for their service.
 
Nominees must live within Knoxville city limits. Previous nominees may be nominated again. More than one nomination may be submitted for a single nominee. The winner will be announced in The Neighborly Notice and will be presented at an invitation-only Awards Dinner in early March.  Nomination forms are posted on the Office of Neighborhood Empowerment website.
 
Don’t delay!  Get those nominations in now to ensure the necessary information is received before the deadline.  Nominators will also receive an invitation to the Awards Dinner.
 
For more information or to request a paper copy of the nomination form, contact Courtney Durrett at cdur...@knoxvilletn.gov or 865-215-3456.
