NEW: Deadline for Leadership RI’s Inspiring Leader Award Jan 11

Tuesday, January 08, 2013


Know someone who is an inspiring leader?

Nominate him/her for an Inspiring Leader Award. Recipients will be recognized at Leadership Rhode Island's Annual Luncheon on March 7th. With the exception of the David E. Sweet Award (in honor of one of our LRI's founders), nominees DO NOT have to be LRI graduates.

Award categories

The David E. Sweet Award was established 22 years ago to honor the memory of one of the driving forces behind the design of the LRI Program, David E. Sweet.  The ideals David Sweet embraced in his leadership roles were ones of service, dedication and a deeply held commitment to the community.  He led by positive example and immense compassion for others, and worked diligently to make a difference. David Sweet personified the spirit of leadership.  This award recognizes an outstanding Leadership Rhode Island alum who has demonstrated his or her commitment to the community, either personally, through the allocation of resources, or by inspiring others to serve the community.

The Rhode Island Community Service Award recognizes an outstanding individual in our state whose extraordinary vision, commitment and leadership have made a significant impact upon our community.  The award recipient does not have to be a LRI graduate.

The LRI Volunteer Award recognizes an outstanding volunteer contribution to Leadership Rhode Island.  Service may take many forms, such as committee work, board service, fund raising, or
program assistance.

The Emerging Leader Award recognizes an outstanding young person whose vision, dedication, and leadership qualities have inspired others to take action to create community change.  The nominee must be 21 years of age or under, or 23 or under and enrolled full-time as an undergraduate, at the time the award is presented. The nominee's leadership must serve a community or communities in Rhode Island.
