Leadership Jacksonville’s annual Celebration event recognizes outstanding community leaders while raising funds for Youth Leadership Jacksonville. Celebration 2021 will premiere as a virtual event on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.

2020-21 has been unusual and Celebration 2021 will be too – but in a good way. This year’s virtual event will recognize “unsung COVID leaders”— citizens who have exhibited extraordinary leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic. Neither nominators nor those nominated need to be Leadership Jacksonville alumni. Do you know a youth, educator, medical professional, someone in government, first responder, a person in the nonprofit or corporate world who has made a difference during the pandemic? We would like to thank them!

Celebration 2021 Unsung COVID Leader Nominations will be accepted online from February 2 to March 5, 2021.

Important Information:

  • Nominees should live or work in the five county area (Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau or St. Johns)
  • Nominees may be any age, youth or adult
  • Nominators are required to provide an account of the nominees’ success story and a reference to support the nomination
  • Some nominees will be selected to share their story by video during the Celebration 2021 program

We have many Celebration 2021 sponsorship opportunities? Please contact Jill Dame for more information on how to support Leadership Jacksonville’s youth programs or call 904-396-6263 x1.
