The Junior League of Columbus bestows 6 major awards each year to people and organizations that uphold the ideals and values of the JLC.
Since 1982, the Junior League of Columbus has presented an annual Community Award to outstanding humans in the community who, through their volunteer involvement and support of voluntarism, have made a significant impact in our community. The purposes of the awards are to acknowledge the meaningful accomplishments that they have made in our community and to motivate and inspire Junior League members by presenting outstanding role models of community service.
Since 1993, the Junior League of Columbus has honored a sustaining member who exemplifies the commitment to volunteerism and community spirit that is integral to the mission of the League. The community involvement and accomplishments of each honoree are celebrated at an annual gathering hosted by the League.
The Junior League of Columbus Presidents’ Award is designed to recognize Junior League members who have done outstanding work and volunteerism while demonstrating our JLC values. These awards have a threefold purpose to recognize members for their voluntary contributions, to make individual members’ contributions more visible to the membership and community, and to emphasize the importance that the JLC places upon its values of collaboration, community, empowerment, leadership, respect, and service. Nominations are sought by and selected by the Awards Committee, composed of the three (3) immediate Past JLC Presidents.
