Do you know a Blue Ribbon Champion?

2018 Nominations Are Now Open

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month 2018, Pennsylvania Family Support Alliance plans to honor individuals from across the Commonwealth for exceptional contributions to the prevention of child abuse and neglect. Nominations for this recognition are welcome from schools, government agencies, community organizations, private practitioners, churches and other concerned individuals or groups.

Four individuals will be recognized – two (2) community volunteers and two (2) staff members who work for organizations that serve the needs of children. This year we'll also recognize a member of the media who has been a champion for kids.

Blue Ribbon Champion Awards winners are shining examples of people working in Pennsylvania to prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening families. The Award is an opportunity to honor champions for children across the state who work tirelessly, often without fanfare or recognition, to improve the lives of our most vulnerable citizens.
