Community Heroes Award

 MADA Community Heroes Award

Applications due November 7,2018


Minnesota franchised new car and truck dealerships are the heart and soul of their local communities, providing good jobs as well as contributing generously to local charities and civic organizations.

The Minnesota Automobile Dealers Association (MADA) would like to recognize the generous spirit of our members by conferring the second annual “MADA Community Heroes Award” at the Main Event, our annual luncheon celebration of Minnesota’s retail motor vehicle industry on December 7, 2018.

All nominees will be acknowledged at the Main Event, with the winning dealership receiving their award at the luncheon.

To be considered, nominated dealerships must demonstrate strong contributions to the local community over the past 12 months.  The Community Heroes Award will be given based on the overall community impact of the dealership’s contribution and the involvement of its store employees.

Nominees should complete the MADA Community Heroes Award Application and submit to the MADA office, along with pictures, by Wednesday, November 7, 2018.
