United Way of Southern Kentucky (UWSK) will host its Annual Live United Awards Reception and Annual Meeting on Thursday, January 19th at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Bowling Green.
The reception will celebrate the triumphs of companies who excelled in furthering the mission of United Way of Southern Kentucky in 2011. The awards structure is centralized around the call to action issued by United Way of Southern Kentucky for those in our community to LIVE UNITED through giving, advocating, and volunteering. More than 30 awards will be presented to organizations from Allen, Barren, Logan, Simpson and Warren counties. Regional campaign totals for 2011 will also be announced.
Finalists for the premier award for the year, the LIVE UNITED Award, will be introduced throughout the evening. This award is presented to the company that exemplifies United Way’s core Give, Advocate and Volunteer goals through outstanding campaign support, significant advocacy on behalf of United Way and exceptional volunteer participation. The top 3 finalists for the LIVE UNITED Award include: Bowling Green Municipal Utilities (BGMU), Warren County Public Schools (WCPS), and Western Kentucky University (WKU). In 2011, the LIVE UNITED Award was presented to U.S. Bank.
