Awards and Recognition

Cradles to Crayons began with the vision of one individual who was determined to make a difference in the world. Today, the Cradles to Crayons community has grown to include thousands of young people and adults — working together to make a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of children each year. The work we are fortunate to do is a reward in itself. But it’s always a good feeling to be recognized among our peers, by our neighbors, and by the community at large.
