The public is invited to submit nominations for the 4-C Friend of the Child Award.

Past winners have included child care program administrators, policy makers, organizations with histories of support for children/child care, and community leaders.
The nominee must live within 4-C’s service delivery area – DeKalb, Ogle, Lee, Carroll, Whiteside and McHenry counties.
