Due to lack of nominations the Denise Stennis Awards has been postponed until later in the year. It was due to be held at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture on Friday, May 20. The Breakin' It Down Planning Committee looks forward to presenting the Awards during the BID Conference, to be held in October 2022.
The Denise Stennis Awards nomination period and eligibility requirements will be announced shortly. The Denise Stennis Awards recognize an individual in the nonprofit, philanthropy, and fundraising field and a nonprofit organization who are serving under-represented and underserved communities in the Chicago area, who have integrated racial equity with sustained strategic collaborations, and who lift pragmatic, action-oriented, and tenacious change makers. Denise Stennis Award recipients are credited with sustained contribution of leadership excellence and service in their communities and inspiring others in the field to do the same. The objective of this Denise Stennis Awards program is not only to recognize those who do contribute, but also to inspire others to make similar contributions to the field.
ABOUT BREAKIN' IT DOWN

Over the years, BID has dedicated itself to partnering with diverse nonprofit, philanthropic, and community leaders in the city, to plan and execute our conference programs.
