The Peacemaker Award is designed to recognize a member of the community who has made a significant difference in promoting tolerance, building good will and understanding, resolving conflict, and striving for peace.
The award will be given during Nation Conflict Resolution Week at the Upstate Mediation Center’s Peacemaking Celebration to honor UMC Volunteers and this year’s Peacemaker!
A selection committee made up of UMC’s Executive Committee and representatives from our corporate sponsors will be looking for nominees that use innovative techniques or ideas that show appreciable change in our community; people who live kind, compassionate, and generous lives. For example, the person may have established a mentoring program, created a safe place for children after school, developed a creative fund-raiser, or worked in a peer program that showed improvement in bullying.
The Upstate Mediation Peacemaker Award is designed to recognize a member of the community who has made a significant difference in promoting peace in the Upstate. This person encourages tolerance, building good will and understanding, resolving conflict, and striving for peace.
