Do you know an incredible kid who’s doing awesome things in Sarasota-Manatee? We want to hear about them! Have they overcome a daunting challenge? Reached an impressive milestone? Made a difference in the community? Each month, we’ll ask you to nominate a local kid who’s made their mark. We’ve partnered with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and Replay Outreach to create a platform for parents, grandparents, teachers and friends to brag about the remarkable young people in their lives.

Winners and their impressive achievements will be recognized on our award-winning website and social media channels AND the Community Foundation of Sarasota County will award a grant in the child’s name to the local nonprofit organization* of their choice. The winner will also get to schedule a visit from The Chill Mobile, the grooviest ice-cream truck in town.

Enter your incredible kid here. 

Nominations close on February 4, 2021. Open to all kids ages 5-16. A panel of judges will choose the winner and we’ll announce in mid-February. 


*The local nonprofit organization must have an approved/current profile in The Giving Partner. The Community Foundation of Sarasota County has reviewed each organization’s profile in The Giving Partner for completeness of the information, however, they depend on their nonprofit partners for the accuracy of the information provided. This is not a grade, rating, or certification.
