The Junior League of Columbus bestows 5 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 women 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 of women in our community and to motivate and inspire Junior League members by presenting outstanding role models of community service.
The Presidents’ Award was created to honor Junior League of Columbus Active members who have performed outstanding work in the areas designated by out Position Statement. Each year the awards committee is composed of the three immediate past JLC Presidents. These awards have a three-fold purpose:
- To recognize members for their voluntary contributions.
- To make individual members’ contributions more visible to the membership and community
- To emphasize the importance that the League places upon the Position Statements.
