2020 Awards Go Virtual!

Mark your calendar for November 19, 2020 as we plan for a virtual event to safely and responsibly honor our nominees and so more of you can join us without travelling. Get Early Bird tickets here.

10,000 Friends of Pennsylvania's Commonwealth Awards honor projects, plans and initiatives that demonstrate smart growth, community resilience, environmental and social justice and equity principles in action, while also promoting 10,000 Friends of PA's mission to help build healthy, vibrant and resilient communities throughout Pennsylvania. 


The awards recognize individuals, businesses or organizations with the vision to find new sustainable and equitable uses for vacant and underutilized land, increase opportunities and access for all in communities on the rise, and breathe new life into old neighborhoods.
