The 21st Annual CARE Awards Breakfast in November 2013 honored 16 companies for their commitment to family-friendly policies and benefits.


Online Application

The 2015 CARE application is available now in both Word and PDF format.

You must complete the form and submit it by Friday, May 15, 2015, in order to finalize your submission.

To be eligible for a CARE Award, businesses must be located (not necessarily headquartered) in Northern Virginia. Download the application, found under "Online Application" to the right, and submit it by Friday, May 15, 2015.

Previous winners are encouraged to apply again. Please note, semi-finalists must participate in a confidential web-based survey of all their Northern Virginia-based employees. Finalists should be prepared to discuss all information in more detail during an on-site interview. Each organization selected to participate will receive a copy of their survey results.

The forms should be completed and certified by a senior HR official in your organization. The last form will require certification by a Senior Executive as well. Since the application process can be lengthy, we recommend you have all of your benefits documentation on hand as you begin.
