The Cornerstone Awards are funded through a $10,000 donation from Superior Toyota.
The PACF will select 10 people from a list of nominations to receive the award.
Each recipient will be able to designate $1,000 to a charity of their choosing.
Each winner will also get a Fenton gold vase to honor a company that has been a cornerstone of the community for more than 100 years.
"We all know someone in our community whether they're a volunteer, work with a local non-profit, community servant, or work with one of the local service clubs who has really gone above and beyond in going the extra mile for someone in making life better. Helping to make this a great place to live and to work and to raise our families. And those are the types of people we're hoping will be nominated for the foundation's cornerstone award because these are the type of people who do form the cornerstone of our community," says PACF Executive Director Judy Sjostedt.
The deadline for nominations is March 27th. To make an online nomination go to www.pacf.com and click on the blue "Parkersburg Area Community Foundation" link.
Print forms are also available at local libraries.
