The City of Portland Announces the 2019 Spirit of Portland Awards Recipients
PORTLAND, OR–The Mayor and City of Portland Commissioners invite you to join them in honoring the 35th Annual Spirit of Portland Award recipients. This year’s award theme is “35 years on the road to 2035 growth, for a more prosperous, equitable, healthier, and resilient city.”
This year is the 35th Anniversary of the Spirit of Portland Awards, and so we have chosen the theme to be associated with the 2035 Comprehensive Plan for the City of Portland. The plan’s five principles guide the categories for nominations this year.
Outstanding Individual and Organization Leadership Awards, Nominated and Chosen by Portlanders:

Awardees embody our city’s culture, goals, and an overarching dedication to enriching the lives of their fellow Portlanders." —Chloe Eudaly, Commissioner
Spirit of Portland Award recipients are chosen by a selection committee composed of representatives from the Mayor’s and City Commissioners’ offices, the Office of Community & Civic Life, community leaders, and previous Spirit of Portland winners.
