The Cobb County Board of Commissioners and the Cobb Community Relations Council invite nominations for the 2012 Creating Community Awards. The purpose of the awards is to recognize an individual, team or organization that has done something unique in making a positive contribution to the inclusion of any of the diverse communities in Cobb County. Those groups could be identified as race/ethnicity, age/generational, religious, grender, disabled or handicapped gender. Each commissioner will receive nominations from his or her district. A committee will be formed to choose each recipient. Nominations should be turned in to the appropriate commissioner by Thursday, Jan. 12. A dinner will be held Thursday, March 15, at Piedmont Church to celebrate the award recipients and their work.
