The National Restaurant Association and National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation has launched the nomination season for the Restaurant Neighbor and Faces of Diversity Awards.

Restaurant Neighbor Award: This award honors restaurants in the field of outstanding community service and involvement. Three national winners receive $10,000 each to support their community efforts, an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, DC to receive their award during a gala awards dinner, and a video highlighting their restaurant. 

Faces of Diversity: These awards promote the importance of diversity and inclusion by raising awareness about the important role restaurants play in providing a ladder of opportunity for millions of Americans who have realized the American Dream through hard work and determination. Three winners are selected and are flown to Washington, DC for an awards dinner during the NRA Public Affairs Conference in the spring. A $2,500 scholarship is also made in the name of each winner to a student pursuing a career in the hospitality industry. The State Restaurant Association receives a matching grant of $2,500 if they have a winner from their state.

Ambassador of Hospitality: This award honors extraordinary achievement and exemplary leadership in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Consideration will be given to a nominee who serves as a company Chairperson, CEO, President or Senior Executive for his or her lifetime achievement in the hospitality industry.

Applications are due November 17. Click here for more information and to apply or make a nomination today!
