About the Award

At The Corps Network’s annual National Conference in Washington, DC, we celebrate the important service Corps provide to communities and young people across the country by honoring Corps who have taken on especially noteworthy endeavors within the past year. Projects of the Year are innovative and show a Corps’ ability to work with partner organizations to give Corpsmembers a positive experience and provide the community with meaningful improvements.

How are Projects of the Year Chosen?

Every fall, The Corps Network solicits Project of the Year nominations from our member Corps. Projects must demonstrate an impact on the Corpsmembers involved, as well as a qualitative and quantitative impact on the community. Nominations are reviewed by a panel consisting of members of our Corps Council, and staff from The Corps Network and our member Corps.
