Springdale Spirit Award

springdalespiritlogoSpringdale is filled with amazing people who work hard to make this city exceptional. It is for this reason that we created the Springdale Spirit Award.

The Springdale Spirit Award is for members of our community who are positive forces for good in Springdale. We encourage our residents to nominate someone who works to make Springdale a better place, whether through charity, business, volunteering, civic engagement, community outreach or any other means that has helped the residents of Springdale.

There are two categories: Student and Adult. The Mayor will decide the winners. Winners will be invited to meet the Mayor and will be interviewed and featured in our quarterly newsletter, on our website, and social media properties.

An adult and student winner will be chosen each quarter. If you miss the submission deadline, don’t worry. Your nominee will be automatically entered into the pool of nominations for the following quarter.
