2021 Casey Excellence for Children Awards
Our annual Casey Excellence for Children Awards recognize individuals who have dedicated themselves to building hope and improving outcomes for children and families in the child welfare system.
As the country faces COVID-19 while also confronting racism and inequity, many have stepped up to new challenges with relentless dedication. These awards recognize alumni, birth parents, foster or adoptive parents, and kinship caregivers who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts on behalf of those involved in child welfare.
Nominees will be evaluated on the work they have accomplished at the local, state or national level. Winners will have demonstrated substantial efforts to build hope and improve the lives of children and families in the child welfare system, and it is all the more important to highlight these efforts during these unprecedented times.
