What are your favorite memories of childhood? Do you remember someone who made your life better, taught you something that has guided you through life? In honor of such people, join us in celebrating the first annual Life of a Child Awards. These awards honor people who have improved the life of children in constructive, long-lasting ways.

Our guest speaker and first national winner of the award will be Chris Hansen of NBC News and “Dateline NBC.” An award-winning journalist, he is the author of To Catch a Predator: Protecting Your Kids From Online Enemies Already in Your Home. We will also support two local honorees this year, the Shields Family of South Bend, IN and Michael Squint of Niles, MI.
