Smile, You're in Springfield, Illinois!

The “WOW” Award

The “WOW” Award is our opportunity to recognize those unsung heroes that lift our spirits and inspire us through their simple or extraordinary acts of kindness or superior customer service.

By recognizing those who make a difference in our lives, we are challenged to think about how we can do the same for others.  It’s often not even what we do, but how we do it.  Together, one personal encounter at time, me can make our Springfield a happier place to be.  A place where people feel respected, included, and welcomed.  A place full of hope and smiles. 

Who Should Be Nominated?

Your nominee could be someone in your company, but we hope you’ll think beyond that.  Is there someone who regularly crosses your path who makes you smile, made a difficult situation easier, or performed an unexpected act of thoughtfulness.
