HNH Foundation Issues Call for Legacy Award Nominations


The HNH Foundation is accepting nominations for the 2018 Sandi Van Scoyoc Legacy Award. The award recognizes a New Hampshire not-for-profit organization (or an individual who works with one) for demonstrating exemplary and aspirational commitment or innovation in improving the health of New Hampshire’s children and families.

In recognition of their work, the recipient receives a check in the amount of $2,500.

Nominees should have advanced best practices in one of the HNH Foundation’s priority areas: increasing access to children's health and dental insurance coverage, promoting oral health, preventing childhood obesity, reducing food insecurity, or preventing and reducing childhood trauma. Nominees do not have to be current or past HNH Foundation grantees.

Award nominations will be accepted until June 22, 2018. The honoree will be notified in September.

Previous recipients include Roberta Abodeely, school nurse at the Dr. Norman W. Crisp Elementary School in Nashua; Tammy Levesque, coordinator of the Laconia Health and Wellness Academy, Laconia School District; Krystal Alpers, Franklin’s Parks and Recreation Director; and Helene Mogridge, CEO of the Keene Family YMCA.
