The P2 profession is not for the faint of heart – nor the bashful! Are you working on a project that’s breaking new ground with its approach, challenges, and accomplishments or in any other way? Time to start considering entering it for the 2016 IAP2 Core Values Awards. The awards serve two purposes: they honour the best in the business – like the City of Victoria and St Vrain Valley Schools – and encourage innovative thinking in developing P2 projects.
They also provide validation for committing to P2 – as it did for Noreen Rude (pictured left with Core Values Award judges Maria DeBruijn and Joel Mills), who received the award for Creativity, Collaboration and Innovation in the Field on behalf of the City of Calgary – and a recognition of the value of P2 in grassroots efforts, like “Our Hawkwood”, for which Anne Harding (pictured below) received the award for P2 for the Greater Good.
There are a number of ways where you can be recognized. When IAP2 Canada developed its own Core Values Awards in 2014, a number of Project Categories were established:
- Indigenous Engagement
- P2 for the Greater Good
- Creativity, Collaboration and Innovation in the Field
- Diversity in P2
From those categories, the Project of the Year will be selected, which will go on to compete against Projects of the Year from other IAP2 Affiliates around the world. There are also the awards for Organization of the Year and Research Project of the Year, which are also entered on the world stage.
