Nominations are now closed for the 2024 Unity Awards.

With its 14th annual Unity Awards, Sarasota Magazine seeks to honor those members of our community committed to bridging divides across racial, ethnic, religious, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, and physical and mental ability groups.

We invite you to nominate an outstanding individual. Nominees can be from any profession or industry, whether for-profit or nonprofit. They can be young and new to their causes, or experienced executive directors, volunteers or employees. There is no age limit. What matters is how they inspire others with their work toward achieving equality and human dignity. Our Unity Award winners are exceptional people who bring about change with real results.

A panel of outside judges and Sarasota Magazine editors will select the winners, who will be featured in the January/February 2024 issue of Sarasota Magazine.

The deadline to nominate is Sunday, Oct. 1.

The Unity Awards are proudly presented by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County.
