The For the Love of Children Banquet began in 2015 to celebrate and honor the contributions of Grand Island community members who advocate for and serve children. Every day members of the community work to ensure that all children are well cared for, healthy, educated and loved.

The Banquet awards three For the Love of Children Awards and one Lifetime Achievement Award.  The Association for Child Abuse Prevention (ACAP), in collaboration with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Grand Island, Boys Town, Central Nebraska Child Advocacy Center, Crisis Center, and Heartland CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) encourage nominations for those who have contributed to bettering the lives of children in the Grand Island area.

Award recipients will be honored at the recognition event dinner to be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at Riverside Golf Club.

The Lifetime Achievement award will be presented to an individual who has contributed substantially over his or her lifetime to the well-being of children through employment and/or leadership of or participation in volunteer activities.

Three additional individuals will be recognized for their continuing contributions to child well-being through employment or volunteer activities.

Nomination forms for all awards are available from any one of the hosting organizations.
