KidsFirst Cooperman-Bogue Awards
Nominations for exemplary social service frontline staff who serve Pinellas County children and families are now being accepted beginning November 1, 2020 and ending August 15, 2021.
As part of the redesign, we have increased from four (4) quarterly winners to twelve (12) monthly winners with no annual winner named this year. Should an annual awards ceremony be held at the end of the year, all monthly winners will be recognized and their work spotlighted at the event.
