Nomination forms are available online via Alderwoman Coggs’s website (, or by calling the Alderwoman’s office at 286-2994 to receive a hard copy of the form by mail.

“Honoring people and groups with the Difference Maker Awards is one of my favorite moments every year, as these people help make the 6th District such a vibrant place to live,” Alderwoman Coggs said. “There is still time to submit nominations for those who have been Difference Makers this past year. If you know someone who works diligently to better the community for themselves and others, I encourage you to nominate them as a Difference Maker.”
