Staff Reports

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners and the Cobb Community Relations Council invite nominations for the 2012 Creating Community Awards.

The purpose of these 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, disabled or handicapped, gender, etc.

The purpose of the awards is not only to recognize good works in the county but also to provide a model and inspiration for the rest of the Cobb community.

A dinner will be held Thursday, March 15, at Piedmont Church to celebrate the award recipients and their work.
