Light A Fire 2014
Seattle Met invites you to participate in the third annual Light a Fire Awards! We are currently accepting nominations for individuals and nonprofit organizations to be celebrated in the November 2014 issue of Seattle Met and at a special awards event on October 21.
The deadline for nominations has been extended to July 25!
These awards honor outstanding individuals and nonprofit organizations based in the Seattle metropolitan area that are working to make the city—and beyond—more prosperous, rewarding, and healthful for all our citizens. Now we need your help in telling us who is raising the bar for everyone.
All questions must be answered completely and according to directions to be considered. You may nominate in as many categories as you choose, you may nominate the same organization in multiple categories, and you may nominate yourself or your own organization. Winners are selected on the basis of community impact, and not number of nominations, so please complete only one nomination form per organization in each category.
