New Trier Township Accepting Nominations for the Superior Service Award for Service to Persons with Disabilities

On January 1, 2013, the New Trier Township Office began accepting nominations from the community for the Superior Service Award for Service to Persons with Disabilities.

Nominations will be accepted through March 1, 2013 at the Township Office, 739 Elm Street, Winnetka from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
 
The Township Superior Service Award criteria recognizes an individual or organization for efforts that go above and beyond their normal job duties and responsibilities in providing contributions and advocacy efforts of a significant nature on behalf of persons with disabilities living in New Trier Township; helping to make a positive and significant difference in the lives of persons with disabilities living in the Township; making substantial efforts at inclusion or integration of persons with disabilities into the life of the community and/or their respective organization; or showing leadership in helping implement the Americans with Disabilities Act in New Trier Township.
