Capitol Hill Community Achievement Awards

Each spring, the Great Hall of the Folger Shakespeare Library is the scene of a gala dinner and awards ceremony where Capitol Hill neighbors come together to honor individuals whose distinguished service to our community has benefited us all. Through the generosity of the Folger and support from Capitol Hill businesses and individuals who sponsor and attend the Dinner, funds are raised to support the Foundation's Community Grants and projects.

Founded in 1984, the Capitol Hill Community Achievement Awards have recognized outstanding individuals whose leadership and vision have shaped significant elements of our community life.

The 34th Annual Capitol Hill Community Achievement Awards Dinner will honor our neighbors Geoff Lewis and Steve and Mary Park.  Recipient of this year’s Steve Cymrot Spark Award is Scott Kratz.  The recipient of the Arnold F. Keller Jr. Award  (a $10,000 grant) is the 11th Street Bridge Park.

The Dinner will be held on Wednesday, April 26, at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
