The Sumner and Bonney Lake area Communities For Families Coalition is opening its “Unsung Hero” Community Impact Award to nominations.

Sponsored by Communities For Families’ STARR Project, the award is given to individuals (adults, youth or groups) within the boundaries of the Sumner School District.

Awards will be presented at the upcoming Sumner/Bonney Lake Community Summit on March 26.

Each year, individuals give their time and talent to help others and make both small and large contributions to communities within the Sumner School District.

Their contributions do not go unnoticed, be it within their organization, school, or community they serve in or by the individuals they impact along the way.

Community Impact/Unsung Hero Awards recognize the dedication of those who make the community better.

Nominees must have made a difference in the community without necessarily having the benefit of holding an office, title or position; contributed to the health and well-being of their community’s youth and families; is a behind-the-scenes person who is rarely recognized for their community involvement; and goes above and beyond what is expected of them – as a volunteer, or in their professional role.

The deadline for nominations is Feb. 27. Nomination forms are available and can be mailed to Monica Gaub, STARR Project, 1202 Wood Ave., Sumner, 98390; e-mailed to or faxed to 253-891-6092. For information call 253-334-5895.
