Courage Center Extends Nomination Deadline for 2008 Phillips Awards to July 3
Date:6/13/2008

New this year: Phillips Caregiver Award

MINNEAPOLIS, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Minneapolis-based Courage Center, a nonprofit rehabilitation and resource center, is extending its deadline for nominations for its annual Jay and Rose Phillips Awards. The awards are presented each year by Courage Center to people with disabilities who have achieved outstanding vocational and community success. The new deadline is Thursday, July 3, 2008.

The Phillips Awards are made possible by a grant from the Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation and is open to residents of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and North and South Dakota whose physical disability is of such severity that successful employment during the last three years represents a significant accomplishment. Nominees also must be vocationally and financially independent. Self-employed individuals and employers also are eligible. Additional factors such as attitude, leadership, character and community involvement will also be considered in selecting the award recipients.

New this year: The Phillips Caregiver Award

Disability does not occur in a vacuum, and often has a profound and permanent impact on the people surrounding and interacting with the person with a disability. The Phillips Caregiver Award acknowledges and honors a behind-the-scenes caregiver whose dedication, professionalism and assistance are vital to the successful work and community involvement of a person with a disability.

Work awards will be presented to three individuals and the Caregiver Award to one person. Each winner receives a $2,000 cash award and is among those recognized at the Medtronic Celebration of Courage, on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2008, at the Depot in Minneapolis. More information and nomination forms for both awards are available for download and printing on http://www.courage.org. If you'd like a copy mailed, contact Sue Warner, at 763-520-0263, or sue.warner@courage.org. Nomination deadline: Thursday, July 3, 2008. Winners will be notified in mid-July.
