UNSUNG VIRGINIAN AWARD

Electric Cooperative Members and Cooperative Living Readers are Invited

The Unsung Virginian Award recognizes a Virginian who has done great philanthropic work with no public praise or recognition.

The VMDAEC Awards Committee is inviting readers of Cooperative Living magazine to nominate candidates to be considered for this prestigious statewide award.

Recipients of the Unsung Virginian Award are chosen by an awards committee of the Virginia, Maryland & Delaware Association of Electric Cooperatives (VMDAEC). This committee is made up of members of the boards of directors of VMDAEC’s 15 member cooperatives. Recipients will be recognized at a time and place of the nominee’s choosing, typically their hometown. Nominees must be residents of Virginia.

To make a nomination, please provide the information requested below by November 9 of each year to be considered for up to two additional years. Also, please provide a minimum of two letters of endorsement for your nominee. These letters can be uploaded electronically with your nomination using the form below, or mailed as hard copies to Phyllis Long, c/o Cooperative UV/GS Awards, 4201 Dominion Blvd., Suite 101, Glen Allen, VA 23060.

Many electric cooperatives observed National Lineman Appreciation Day back on April 8, pursuant to a 2014 directive from the NRECA Board of Directors that sets aside the second Monday in April for the observance. But, today, many other utilities will recognize National Lineman Appreciation Day, due to legislation that cleared the U.S. Senate in 2013. Since there's no such thing as too much attention being drawn to our electric cooperative lineworkers, here are some cute co-op kids who would like to honor the lineworkers of Virginia, Maryland and Delaware's electric cooperatives!

Give your local electric cooperative a call, post on their Facebook page, or make a post on social media and #ThanksALineworker today!
