The City of Fort Collins Human Relations Commission (HRC) is accepting nominations for its Human Relations Awards. The Awards Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 from 4-5 p.m. Nominations will be accepted through October 24, 2021.

Every year, the Human Relations Award recognizes community members and organizations who advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the City of Fort Collins. Nominations are accepted in four categories:

  • Individual Award
  • Youth Award (18 & younger)
  • Organization Award (non-profit and for-profit)

The award process considers the length of service and commitment to the community. Anyone who has not previously won the award is eligible for consideration. There are no Fort Collins residency requirements.

If you know an individual or an organization that has positively impacted historically marginalized or underserved community members, nominate them today at or by calling (970) 416-4254.
