First Steps, the New River Valley’s (NRV) local early childhood network, is accepting nominations for the 4th Annual Early Childhood Champions Awards! The awards recognize those working in the NRV as early education and child care providers, preschool teachers, child development specialists, human service providers, healthcare professionals, librarians, policymakers, and advocates who have positively impacted the lives of the NRV’s youngest citizens.

All nominees will be recognized at an awards breakfast ceremony held August 23rd at the Inn at Virginia Tech as a part of the Annual Igniting Connections Symposium early childhood conference. Five standout nominees will be recognized and receive an award made possible by the Community Foundation of the New River Valley. Complete this form to nominate an Early Childhood Champion by July 15th. Only those who primarily serve the NRV (the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, Pulaski, and Wythe, and the City of Radford) are eligible for these awards.
