The nomination form is designed to allow the nominator to provide information about the nominee’s exemplary contribution to the community and to Archway.

The selection committee, comprised of Archway staff and board members, chooses the winners at its discretion, based on the information contained in the nomination, as well as information requested from our programs or the nominees themselves.

Past Recipients of Community Builders’ Awards

The Community Builders’ Awards was created in 2006 by our Board of Directors to honor and acknowledge individuals who have made a significant contribution to not only Archway Community Services but to the community at large. Since then the program has grown to include individuals, organizations and for profit companies.
