Stick Figure Giraffes

The Champions for Children Event: A History

Since 1996, MCA has enjoyed recognizing heroes in the community who “stick out their necks” for Maine kids from York County to Aroostook County. The Giraffe Award brings recognition to dozens of hardworking individuals. Our annual celebration provides an opportunity for the Maine community to say "thank you" to people who have sacrificed and have invested time, energy, talent, and grit to help our children and families. 

The Giraffe Awards recognize winners in different categories including: Individual, Organization, Business and Youth. Past winners include people working in children's mental health, youth camps, Maine businesses that have been generous to young people, volunteers, educators and many more.
