Community Service Awards … the show will go on

This year COVID-19 has forced organizations and businesses to redirect their efforts and “reimagine” their events. The Chronicle is no exception. We’ve had to revamp and reinvent during these challenging times. Yet, we remain committed to supporting our community. 

With that being said, the 35th annual Community Service Awards will go on … virtually. The ceremony will be aired on Dec. 5.  

The Chronicle recognizes people in our community who go beyond the call of duty to serve others in Winston-Salem and surrounding areas. COVID made connecting with people nearly impossible with social distancing guidelines. This year, we put a special focus on those who overcame and persevered the challenges presented by the pandemic and still used their reach to help others.  

In October, we conducted Instagram and Facebook polls for nominations. You (our readers) have spoken and the winners have been chosen. We will be honoring area residents with the following awards:

*Man of the Year

*Woman of the Year

*Church of the Year

*Youth of the Year

*Creator of the Year

*2 Lifetime Achievement Awards

*For Seniors Only Award

The Chronicle’s Community Service Awards is one of the most anticipated events in our community. We were looking forward to topping our very successful event from last year. In 2019 we changed the format of the Community Service Awards ceremony. It mirrored other red carpet events like the Grammys™ or the Oscars™. 

We plan to bring that same excitement and anticipation with this virtual event. Join us on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m. on our Facebook page (@WSChronicle) or on our YouTube Channel (Winstonsalem Chronicle) as we celebrate our annual awards ceremony and honor the service and accomplishments of those who have shown exemplary leadership in our community.
