The Communitas Award
The Communitas Award is the creative vision of the R.S. Owens Company, originators of the Oscar®, Emmy®, MTV® and MarCom® Awards. The glass and metal award weighs six and a half pounds. It is 12 inches tall with the Communitas logo sand carved into glass along with an inscription for the type of nomination. The glass will either be inscribed with Excellence In Corporate Social Responsibility; Excellence In Community Service; or Corporate Social Responsibility & Community Service. The glass is held by two highly-polished, outstretched, cast metal, gold arms. The award is presented on a black nickel base. Each award comes with a personalized nameplate inscribed with the winner's information.
Communitas Awards keeps its nomination fees at reasonable levels by not making all nominees subsidize the cost of awards for the winners. Each winner is presented with a certificate and is given the option to purchase an award for $235. This ensures that the award is a high-quality piece of art that anyone would be proud to display in their office or home.
