CLASSY Award recognizes charities, individuals and businesses that are doing good in the community
Nominate your favorite charity before Friday, September 17.
The CLASSY Awards is an awards competition recognizing the top philanthropic achievements by charities, businesses, and individuals in eight major cities nationwide: Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.
The CLASSY Awards isn't just a popularity contest - it's focused on tangible action and results. We're looking to recognize and highlight the greatest achievements - large and small - by individuals and organizations giving back to the community. Last year's award winners rappelled off buildings to raise money, started orphanages for abused and neglected children in Tijuana, and built giant structures out of tens of thousands of cans to collect food donations. We're looking forward to seeing how this year's nominees are giving back!
Beginning August 1, America is invited to nominate praiseworthy charities, business and individuals for ten (10) awards categories. Based on those nominations, a panel of judges in each city will determine the nominees who have the most compelling stories, the most "out of the box" ideas and have made the greatest impact on their communities. The top five (5) nominees in each category, in each city will be deemed City Finalists and will then be voted on by the public. The City Finalists with the most online votes in each category will be crowned the City Award Winners, and automatically entered into online voting for a National CLASSY Award.
The competition will culminate at a red-carpet awards ceremony on Sunday, November 7 in Downtown San Diego, CA featuring a host of celebrity presenters, chart-topping music talent, nonprofit industry leaders, social media gurus, and hundreds (if not thousands) of CLASSY Awards supporters. More than $100,000 in the form of cash and in-kind services will be donated to support the charitable efforts of the ten (10) National CLASSY Awards Winners. All City Award Winners will be given two (2) complimentary tickets to attend the CLASSY Awards ceremony.
With the help of our 2nd Annual CLASSY Awards partners, the event is sure to dazzle and inspire all who attend.
