SelectHealth to Award Those Creating a Healthier Utah

Insurance carrier to award $2,500 grants to 25 nonprofit organizations improving health

SALT LAKE CITY--()--Are you doing something to improve health in the community or serve populations with special needs? If so, SelectHealth wants to help.

SelectHealth created the Select 25 award to recognize individuals or organizations that are making Utah healthier. Twenty-five award recipients will receive $2,500 to further their cause. Applications for the award are being accepted now through January 11, 2013 at select25.org. Only the first 500 applications will be considered.

A wide range of organizations have received the award since it was first introduced in 2008. Last year’s recipients included a cancer screening program for Hispanic women, a dance class for children with disabilities, and a shelter for victims of domestic violence.

“It is an honor to work with so many great nonprofits throughout the state,” says SelectHealth Community Relations Director Greg Reid. “Each year, we are inspired by the award winners and all they do to make Utah a better place to live.”

In addition to offering a cash grant, SelectHealth will create marketing materials for each award winner to help promote their organization.

At least three recipients will be chosen from each of four specified Utah regions (see region map). Thirteen at-large winners will also be chosen. Completed applications will be reviewed by a committee of leaders from SelectHealth, Intermountain Healthcare, and the community.
