The POWER of Performance Awards are a true highlight of our Small Communities, BIG Solutions Conference (SCBS) each year. In 2018 we began recognizing individuals, employers, nonprofits, organizations, and institutions who are driving forward success in West Virginia. As SCBS enters its fifth year, we remain dedicated to sharing success stories, highlighting #WVSolutions, and honoring those who are leading the way.
Our conference partners, including the Alliance for Economic Development of Southern West Virginia, Coalfield Development Corporation, and the WV Community Development Hub, are excited to honor these individuals during our in-person Small Communities, BIG Solutions Conference that will be held on November 15-17, 2022 at the University of Charleston. The awards ceremony will take place on our Community Day, November 16th.
We are thrilled to be celebrating year five of our conference and our POWER of Performance Awards. We have revamped and restructured our nomination process this year so please be sure to read the award categories and nomination requirements in their entirety.
Deadline to submit a nomination extended to October 14, 2022

While all of our nominees for this award are truly deserving. Sometimes, however, their nomination packets do not highlight the person’s work in a way that makes his or her accomplishments clear to the selection committee. Please be sure to provide a complete response to each of the following questions. Nominations must clearly document why the individual or organization should be considered for this award.
