This year, HCAN will present four awards, reflecting our vision of Hawaiʻi where all children are healthy, safe, and ready to learn. There is no cost to submit a nomination, and a nominee can be submitted for multiple categories. Self-nominations are also welcome. Nominations must be received by January 20, 2023 at 11:59 pm.
The 2023 award categories are:
- Innovator: A pioneering individual, group, or organization that implemented a creative, out-of-the-box solution to support Hawaiʻi’s children.
- Unsung Hero: An individual who made a profound difference for kids in their community, but who often isn’t in the spotlight or isn’t recognized for their role.
- Family-Friendly Employer: A company whose HR policies and practices go above and beyond to support its employees with children.
- Advocate: An individual whose outspoken voice pushed forward a solution to a challenge facing children in their community.
