Now accepting nominations for the 2020 Ken Wagner Award

Know someone who has dedicated their life to helping others? Don’t forget to submit your nominations for the 2020 Ken Wagner Award for Outstanding Service! The award will be given annually to someone whose life reflects¬†the commitment to service exhibited by Emmaus co-founder Ken Wagner.

A life of service to people with intellectual disabilities and autism is recommended but not necessary for the awardee. Anyone who has shown self-giving the way Ken did is eligible. Any individual may nominate a potential awardee. Emmaus Board members and Emmaus employees are not eligible for this award.

The form (click here!) should be submitted no later than 2/24/2020. The Ken Wagner Award selection committee will decide on the recipient. The awardee and the Wagner family will be notified. The winner will be invited to the Emmaus Roarin’ 20s Gala on April 25, 2020 at the Pittsburgh Westin, where the award will be given, and the winner will receive a complimentary table.
