You watched them innovate despite criticism. They inspired those around them and displayed selfless leadership. They took risk to successfully break gridlock or catalyzed change. They’re this year’s Courage Awards Winners.

Whether personally, professionally, or simply from reading the news and keeping up with the region, you know at least one person that fits this description. They deserve recognition. But we can’t honor them if you don’t tell us who they are.

Every year, the Crosscut Courage Awards recognize those individuals among us who have shown bold leadership and enduring courage, despite personal or organizational risk. Please take a minute to fill out this quick nomination form, for nominees in the categories of public service, culture, business, and lifetime achievement.

After you nominate, grab yourself a ticket as well – early bird ticketing is now live. The Courage Awards will be held October 29 in Seattle.


Please support independent local news for all.

We rely on donations from readers like you to sustain Crosscut's in-depth reporting on issues critical to the PNW.
