2019 New Thought Walden Award Nominations
The Walden Awards honor those who use empowering spiritual ideas and philosophies to change lives and make our planet a better place. The awards are a joint partnership of six of the country’s largest New Thought organizations. A selection committee will choose a total of 18 honorees, three in each of the six categories named below.
To make a nomination, just click on the appropriate category. You may make nominations in just one category or in up to all six categories. Feel free to nominate as many people as you please in each category. You can nominate people who are well known, but we’re particularly interested in hearing about relatively unsung heroes who deserve recognition. Nominations will be open until December 31, 2018.
The 2019 honorees will be announced online on August 1 and will be named in both the September/October issue of Unity Magazine and the September issue of Science of Mind magazine. Honorees will also be invited to take part in a live online summit to be held in October 2019. Watch waldenawards.org for updates.
The New Thought Walden Awards partner organizations include Unity, Centers for Spiritual Living, Association for Global New Thought, Agape International Spiritual Center, Universal Foundation for Better Living, and Affiliated New Thought Network.
