Leadership Tulsa is accepting nominations from nonprofit organizations for the twenty-second annual Paragon Awards.
The Paragon Awards recognize Leadership Tulsa members for their outstanding commitment to community services. Three winners will be selected. Award trophies are presented to the winners, and cash awards will be given to the agencies nominating the winners.
Nonprofit organizations should nominate a volunteer who has developed an ongoing commitment to the agency and demonstrated distinguished leadership which has resulted in a significant impact on the organization. Nominees must have completed Leadership Tulsa classes 1 through 37 and cannot have received any compensation from the nominating agency for the work for which they are being nominated. Nominating agencies must have 501(c)(3) status. Deadline for nominations is March 3, 2008.
Leadership Tulsa identifies, develops and connects diverse leaders who impact the community through service. The Paragon Awards were developed out of a desire to not only nurture the development of civic leaders, but to also honor those who accept the challenge of leadership.
