Each year, the U.S. Soccer Foundation leverages the 2019 Urban Soccer Symposium as an opportunity to highlight best practices and exceptional successes of individuals and organizations in the sports-based youth development network through the Urban Soccer Symposium Awards. Award recipients fall into three categories: 1) Influence; 2) Innovation; and 3) Impact.
When choosing your nominee, please keep in mind the following criteria:
- Influence: Given to an individual holding public office that has leveraged their position to support, advocate for, and champion sports-based youth development efforts in underserved communities.
- Innovation: Given to a youth-serving 501(c)(3) organization utilizing imaginative tactics and original programming to create positive social change in underserved communities.
- Impact: Given to a youth-serving 501(c)(3) organization that has used sport to enact measurable and sustainable positive change within an underserved community for at least 5 years.
The Nomination Form will close on 1/11/2019 at 5:00pm EST. All relevant parties will be notified by early February, and winners will have their registration fee waived and will receive one night's free accommodation at the host hotel.
