Public Health Achievement Award nominations open

The Dakota County Public Health Department is seeking nominations for the annual Public Health Achievement Awards.

Community health leaders are recognized in three categories: youth, individual and community group (coalitions, partnerships or organizations). Winners are selected based on their leadership, contribution to solutions to public health problems, collaboration, advocacy, role modeling, and evidence of impact

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, Feb. 23. For a nomination, visit and search “Achievement Award,” or call 651-554-6100.
