Ignite Spring 2017 – Wheat Ridge Accepting Nominations for Emerging Leader Award

Nominate or apply now!

Last September LCMA was excited to promote Wheat Ridge Ministries’ Emerging Leader Grant Program on our Facebook page. Well, Wheat Ridge has just opened up a new Emerging Leader opportunity! Here’s what they said in a press release dated May 16:

Wheat Ridge Ministries is searching for an inspired, young leader to honor with The Richard E. Herman Emerging Leader Award. The award will recognize the commitment and service of one leader whose work is changing systems that perpetuate poverty, whether through their professional work or as a volunteer. (Read the full release here.)

If you know (or are) a young leader who is making a difference in lives and communities affected by poverty, Wheat Ridge and LCMA encourage you to submit a nomination for this special recognition. To be eligible, the leader must be:

  • 18 to 35 years old
  • Christian
  • engaged in professional work or volunteerism that is changing the systems that perpetuate poverty
The Richard E. Herman Emerging Leader Award includes
  • a $4,000 cash award
  • Invitation to The Christian Community Development Association Conference, (registration, travel, and lodging covered by Wheat Ridge Ministries)
  • Invitation to Wheat Ridge’s annual Emerging Leader Convening, a gathering of inspired emerging leaders to network, learn and reflect (hosted and paid for by Wheat Ridge Ministries)

The deadline for application is August 1, 2017!
