About the year's winners Nominate

recognizing communities that organize to solve problems

Throughout this country’s history people have pooled their ideas, resources, and efforts to create positive change in their own communities. Today, self-organized groups of families, friends, and residents from our least resourced communities continue to come together in meaningful ways to strengthen their communities.

The Torchlight Prize recognizes the knowledge, skill, and initiative demonstrated by these groups and encourages direct investment into resident-led initiatives to amplify their impact.
