Thank You to Our 2017 Judges!
Each judge spent countless hours independently reading and scoring each application. We work diligently to invite judges that are free of any potential conflicts in order to ensure objective scoring. If by chance a judge has worked with a submitting organization, they did not score that category. This year, we were fortunate to have three judges from community foundations.
