Honoring Early Childhood Champions
The NRV is home to extraordinary teachers, human service providers, healthcare providers, and advocates who work tirelessly to meet the needs of our young children and their families. These professionals put their passion and expertise to work in ways that support our entire region. First Steps recognizes these amazing individuals and teams annually through the Early Childhood Champion Awards. We select five award recipients overall, including three honorees, one runner-up, and one early childhood champion of the year. Each receives a cash prize made possible by the Community Foundation.
