REALTOR® Magazine seeks entries for Good Neighbor Awards – Deadline May 20

Good Neighbor Award Entry Deadline: May 20

Five $10,000 grants will be awarded!

REALTOR® Magazine is seeking nominations for its 14th annual Good Neighbor Awards. The National Association of REALTORS®’ annual program recognizes REALTORS® who’ve made an extraordinary commitment to their communities through volunteer work.

Five winners will be announced this fall at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco. The winners will receive a $10,000 grant for their community cause.

In small towns and large cities across the country, REALTORS® help shape and promote community values, giving their time and effort to noble causes. Last year in Illinois, REALTOR® Charlene M. Brennan of Strano & Associates Real Estate in Fairview Heights was among the 10 finalists for the award, nominated for her work helping serve the Rotary District 6510′s Belizean Children’s Program. And in 2007 Illinois REALTOR® Virginia Ferry received the award for her community service to the MorningStar Mission Ministries in Joliet.

Previous Good Neighbor Award winners say their charities benefit from the grant money and the increased public exposure.

Good Neighbor Award entries must be received by May 20, 2013. For more details and entry form visit www.realtor.org/gna.
