Common Q&A

  • Your candidate does not have to be a Barberton resident. Nominees should be connected to Barberton through their work, volunteerism or residency.
  • Letters of support are highly encouraged and can be attached at the end of the form in the Supporting Letters/Documents section.
  • Think carefully about nominating a person vs. their business/organization. If you are nominating an individual, your application should reflect that individual’s accomplishments. If you nominate their business/organization, your application should reflect that business/organization’s accomplishments.
  • Game Changers are selected in mid July, and recognized at the Foundation’s Annual Dinner in November.
