Community Service Award

Community Service Award


The North Hills Community Service Award was established in 2021 to honor individuals in the community making significant contributions to the North Hills School District through their time, talents and dedication striving to make the community a better place.

Nomination Process

There will be a nomination period each fall ending on November 30. The Community Service Award will be presented the following January at a school board meeting.


The inaugural award will be presented in June 2021. The nomination period is now open and will remain open through May 1, 2021. Please fill out the form below to submit your nomination. 

Once the nomination period ends, each member of the NHSD Board of Education will receive information about each nominee and make their selection.

From there, the superintendent and board of education president, vice president, chief liaison for Community and Intergovernmental Relations and board secretary will review the nominations and make the final selection.

The individual selected will be contacted to confirm their acceptance of the honor. The runner-up will remain as a potential candidate until acceptance has been confirmed. Runners-up will be considered for the honor in subsequent years.

Criteria for Consideration

To be considered, all nominees must reside in the North Hills School District and have made a significant community contribution through their time, talents and dedication. Contributions must be outside any volunteer work done for their employer. The honoree should also serve as a role model for compassion and service, striving to make our community a better place.
