Each year the Green Bay Neighborhood Leadership Council gives Neighborhood Awards to recognize outstanding performances by Neighborhood Associations and individuals that work to strengthen Green Bay neighborhoods and build community. Public nominations for the awards are accepted, and the GBNLC Executive Committee, plus the assistance of an additional volunteer, select the award recipients.
