Call for Nominations for the 15th Annual Minnesota Pinwheels for Prevention Tribe/Community Awards
Each year, Minnesota Communities Caring for Children (MCCC) recognizes statewide tribes and communities that have consistently worked to create safe and healthy environments for children and families. We want to celebrate the crucial work of these communities that are creating spaces and opportunities for their children to thrive by enhancing prevention initiatives and family and children’s services.
We invite ALL Minnesota tribes and communities to submit nominations. We are happy to present this award to communities that show strong, innovative, and successful efforts in creating cultures of prevention!
We can provide additional information to assist you in presenting the award to your local community leaders, representatives, administrators, commissioners, and/or tribal leaders. MCCC also provides additional resources online and will highlight all award recipients’ prevention initiatives at www.pcamn.org
