Courage Center Now Accepting Nominations for Jay and Rose Phillips Awards and Phillips Caregiver Award

MINNEAPOLIS, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Minneapolis-based Courage Center, a nonprofit rehabilitation and resource center, is accepting nominations for two awards:

  • The 2009 Jay and Rose Phillips Awards are presented each year by Courage Center to people with disabilities who have achieved outstanding vocational and community success. Three people will be recognized for this employment award and receive a $2,000 cash award.
  • The Phillips Caregiver Award is presented for the second year because we recognize that 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. One person will be recognized and receive a $2,000 cash award.

All Phillips Award winners will be recognized at the 2009 Medtronic Celebration of Courage, set for Saturday, Aug. 15, 2009, at the Depot in Minneapolis.

The Phillips Awards are made possible by funding from the Jay and Rose Phillips Family Foundation. Forms are available for download and printing on Courage Center's website -

The nomination deadline is Friday, May 29, 2009. Winners will be notified in early July.
