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 December 3, 2021 to be considered. Also, please provide letters of endorsement for your nominee.
