About the Award

The Committee for Community Involvement (CCI) gives the Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award to honor individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership engaging members of their community in civic affairs.


The Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award celebrates those who do work that provides benefits such as: 
 

  • fostering positive leadership;

  • bringing clarity to complex Washington County issues;

  • informing or shaping decisions through community input, especially through substantial efforts that have a positive impact;

  • inclusive community engagement that broadens and diversifies participation, especially with younger populations and historically under-represented communities;

  • building trust, transparency and responsiveness in government.
