Spirit of Portland Awards
Spirit of Portland Awards is 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.
The 2018 award ceremony was held on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. The ceremony theme celebrated "One city, many communities."
"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."
