Bowie Faces of Kindness

Throughout the pandemic, Bowie residents have triumphed in the face of the virus by spreading kindness to their neighbors. To honor those residents, businesses and organizations who have engaged the community and performed extraordinary acts of kindness to make life better in this difficult time, the City of Bowie is announcing Bowie Faces of Kindness Award. 

Whether it’s the neighbor making masks for seniors, the people delivering groceries to vulnerable residents, or the volunteers cooking and delivering meals to essential workers or neighbors who can’t leave their homes, we see the faces of kindness in our residents every day. The Bowie Faces of Kindness Award will recognize these everyday heroes who give us hope in these challenging times.   

The City will honor recipients with a special Bowie Faces of Kindness Award to recognize our neighbors - our local heroes - who’ve engaged and supported the community during the pandemic. Honorees will receive a citation and be featured on the City’s social media platforms and in other public communications.  


Nominees should live in the incorporated city limits of Bowie or have provided an act of kindness to our residents. Nominations should include the name, address, telephone number and email address of the individual(s) and a brief description (100 words or less) of their acts of kindness as it relates to helping others during the COVID-19 crisis. 

Award selections will be made by the Community Outreach Committee. Please email the Committee Liaison, Lori Cunningham, if you have questions or need more information, Please complete the online form or you can mail your nomination to:
