About the Darden Awards

Currently accepting nominations for 2019 Darden Awards.

The Darden Awards annually welcomes over 500 regional executives and community leaders to celebrate the honorees and their contributions to regional leadership.  Established in 2005, the Darden Award for Regional Leadership is named for CIVIC Leadership Institute’s Founder Emeritus, the late Joshua P. Darden Jr. 

Each year, one individual and one corporation from the Hampton Roads region is selected to receive the award.  Those who are honored, have delivered extraordinary service on boards, commissions and as community volunteers, worked to create sustainable efforts toward the betterment of life for the people of the Hampton Roads Region and demonstrate exceptional leadership in the pursuit of regional cooperation.
