Giraffe Awards

Since 1996, MCA has recognized those who do extraordinary work on behalf of children in communities all over Maine. MCA has adopted the giraffe as its symbol for our ongoing efforts to "stick our necks out" to improve the well-being of children, youth and families in Maine. The annual Giraffe Awards program calls attention to the achievements of dedicated volunteers, professionals and organizations who also "stick their necks out" for kids.

The Giraffe Awards recognize winners in different categories including: outstanding individual award, youth award, business award and organization award. Past winners have included people working in children's mental health, youth camps, Maine businesses that have been generous to young people, volunteers, educators and many more.

The Champions for Children Event 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.
