$5000 Cash Award in Four Distinct Categories

To celebrate our 50th anniversary: Honoring Tradition, Memory and Vision, the Urban Indian Center of Salt Lake (UICSL) is excited to introduce a new award called The Circle of Excellence, which extends the Woven Wisdom Award. This award will honor five outstanding American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) community members. Each awardee will be recognized for their unique contributions in one of the following categories: Expressive Creativity, Community Service, Sports, and Lifetime Achievements. The best applications will show strong leadership and demonstrate how you or they have made a big difference in our AI/AN community.  

If you have any questions about the contest or application, please contact Mary Louise Santacaterina at 801-946-2785. 

If you have applied for the previous Woven Wisdom Award,

your nomination will be accepted and considered for The Circle of Excellence Award

Applications and/or nominations for employees or contractors will be placed in a separate judging pool and will be considered separately.

5 Winners & 5 Runners-Up

The UICSL Review Committee will select one winner and one runner-up in each category.
Both the winners and runners-up will be announced during the Award Ceremony in December 2024 (exact date to be determined). Winners will also be highlighted through all UICSL media channels, which will include their picture and biographies. Award money will be given at the Award Ceremony (in December).
