On Thursday, Dec. 3 from 8-9 pm, Councilmember Charles Allen will host the 14th Annual Brickie Awards. Carrying on the tradition of former Councilmember Tommy Wells’ Livable Walkable Awards, the Brickies honor local people and organizations whose leadership, commitment, and vision make Ward 6 a great place to live and work.

In years past, the Brickies were an opportunity for Ward 6 residents to come together over food and drink to celebrate neighbors and community organizations who have gone above and beyond in “building” Ward 6. This year, the award ceremony will be held online.

Award categories include:  

  • Neighbor Award
  • Community Organization Award
  • Business Award
  • Public Service Award
  • Civic Pride Award

Last year’s winners were Christine Spencer (Neighbor Award), Steadfast Supply (Business Award), CRYSP DC (Community Organization Award), Ana the Shad and Wendy the Water Drop (Public Service Award), and Heather Schoell (Civic Pride Award).
