DURHAM, N.H. -- Students at the University of New Hampshire wish
to recognize the efforts of those who help foster rich and strong
communities in the state by presenting the first-ever University
of New Hampshire Community Leader of the Year Award.
The award will be presented at a black tie optional banquet and
ball Thursday, Dec. 4, 2003, in UNH's new Holloway Commons. Organized
and run entirely by students in the university's Community Development
Program, the event will include a silent auction, dinner, award
ceremony and dancing, with all proceeds going to a scholarship fund.
Three versions of the award will be presented including Community
Leader of the Year, Community-Supporting Organization of the Year,
and Student Community Leader of the Year. The deadline for nominations
was Nov. 1 and they have poured in from all over the state.
Tickets for the event are $50 per person, and $30 per student.
Community members are encouraged to "sponsor" a student.
Tables (seats 8) may be purchased for $375, which includes a half-page
