WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

When it comes to building a Culture of Health, the challenges are many and solutions seldom straightforward. However, evidence from community successes point to several key elements playing a vital role in catalyzing and sustaining positive change. Because the Prize recognizes whole communities, applicants must think beyond their own individual organizations and initiatives to what has been accomplished across the community. Applications will be judged based on the criteria below.
