Delridge Council Seeking Nominations for Unsung Heroes Award

Delridge Neighborhood District Council is hosting the first annual Delridge District Unsung Heroes Awards with a Banquet on April 20th at 6pm.

The Who, What and How:

Nominations are open for anyone who volunteers in the Delridge District. The Delridge District borders are Spokane Street to the North, the Duwamish River to the East, Roxbury to the South and 35th Avenue to the West.

  • Do you have a neighbor who tirelessly serves the neighborhood picking up trash or fixing bicycles? Someone who works with seniors, or organizes for the neighborhood is an example for who would qualify.
  • Any volunteer who serves within the Delridge District is eligible, whether working with an organization or as a neighbor. They must not be doing so in a paid position.

To nominate an Unsung Hero, please review the criteria on the application. It is available as an online form to Apply Online or download a printable version as A Google Document.

The deadline for nominations is March 23rd. The top eight nominees will be invited to the Banquet on April 20th. One Outstanding Unsung Hero will be named at the event. They will be nominated for the following year’s Washington Jefferson Award, a Nobel Prize for public service.

Will you help make this event a success? The Unsung Heroes Planning Committee is still looking for financial support to create this first annual event. To help support the Unsung Heroes Banquet, we need $2,000 for us reach our budget of $2,500.00. Please contact Mike Shilley to become an event sponsor at or by phone at 206-762-7111.
