About the Dundalk Renaissance Milestone Awards:

The Dundalk Renaissance Milestone Awards recognize individuals, businesses, institutions, and groups that have contributed to Dundalk’s revitalization and building our future. We also honor with our Gemstone Awards up to 5 young people attending our area high schools or CCBC-Dundalk, with accomplishments that have made Dundalk a stronger community.

To date, the Milestone Awards have honored 44 community and business leaders, and the 2019 honorees will join this respected list of change makers. Nominees may self-nominate or be nominated by another person. Nominees must live, work, or participate in activities that serve the Dundalk area (zip code 21222, County 21224) and exhibit leadership and commitment in furthering the values of Dundalk Renaissance: Neighborliness, Innovation, Heritage, Diversity, Opportunity, Sustainability, Engagement, and Unity.

Thank you for helping us shine a light on those working to build a better Dundalk!
