The award ceremony will be held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Theme for this year's ceremony is "One city, many communities".
Spirit of Portland Awards are a recognition of local heroes, and the impact of their work on creating a shared future in a city we all share. Each year Portland City Council presents Spirit of Portland Awards to individuals and organizations who make outstanding contributions to our community.
"Since its inception in 1985, the Spirit of Portland Awards has recognized activists, community advocates, and a wide range of committed individuals who serve to advance the Portland community. Awardees embody our city’s culture, goals, and an overarching dedication to enriching the lives of their fellow Portlanders."
Chloe Eudaly, Commissioner
