The NYC Dads Matter Awards
ESI Community and Friends: Do you know a great dad who resides in the five boroughs who has overcome challenges to play a positive and powerful role in the life of his child and community?
This June, the Mayor’s Citywide Fatherhood Initiative will present the Fourth Annual NYC Dads Matter Awards. The event will recognize 10 fathers from across the City who overcame the odds to become positive and consistent forces in the lives of their children.
Nominate an outstanding dad today! This person can be part of our ESI community or anyone you know who’s been a strong and positive influence in the life of their child. A selection committee comprised of community and government leaders will review the nominations and select 10 honorees to receive their awards in June.
Nomination Forms and Essays are due Friday, May 16, 2014.
To nominate an exceptional dad, complete this nomination form and type a three paragraph essay explaining how you know the potential honoree, the qualities that make him an exemplary father, and why you think he deserves a NYC Dads Matter Award. All nominees must be a father who actively participates in the life of his child, giving their health and welfare top priority. Please note that nominations are open to the public and posthumous awards will not be given.
