WHAT IS THE PEOPLE POWER AWARD?
The People Power Award is an annual award we will give to a grassroots organization that is working hard to make a difference and is using buttons to spread their message.
Along with a custom six-inch button award, the winner will receive a free order of custom buttons so that they can continue to spread their message! Through our promotion of the award and the recipient's work, we can help create greater awareness for the work they are doing.
Recipients of the award will demonstrate our own values here at People Power Press. We believe in the power of people working to create positive change in the world. Buttons are an effective, fun and low-cost way to share the spirit and message of any organization’s work.
