CELEBRATING SOLUTIONS

 

The Mary Byron Project created the Celebrating Solutions Awards to showcase and applaud local innovations that demonstrate promise in breaking the cycle of violence. We select programs that can serve as models for the nation and offer $10,000 cash awards in recognition of their pioneering efforts. Nominations are judged by a panel of experts in criminal justice, health care, and public policy, and other disciplines that address domestic violence.

Eligibility Criteria for Celebrating Solutions Awards:

  • The nominated program, the agency or organization, and the core components of the program being nominated must have been operating for a minimum of three (3) years (established no later than September 2009 for the 12-13 award year.) The program must be in existence when the nomination is made.

 

  • The program must be part of a non-profit 501(c) (3) or government agency.

 

  • The program should be replicable, or if it is national in scope, the program should have applications for individual communities, regardless of their size or ethnic population.

Awards Process


There are two stages to the awards process. Stage one requires submission of a nomination form, program outline, and release. If your nomination advances to the second stage, you will be asked to provide additional information and letters of support. Do not send brochures, videos, annual reports, or any support materials for the first round of judging, as they will be discarded.


Nominations are judged by a panel of experts in criminal justice, health care, and public policy. These individuals remain anonymous so their ability to judge the nominations will not be influenced by a relationship with a nominated organization.

Not Eligible for Celebrating Solutions Awards are:


  • Past Celebrating Solutions Award winners.

 

  • Organizations other than non-profit or governmental.

 

  • Organizations operating outside the United States or a U.S. territory.

 

  • Individuals.

 

  • Basic research.
