2021 BLEND Awards goes VIRTUAL...again! It is with great disappointment (and an abundance of caution) that we announce that the 2021 BLEND Awards ceremony will be VIRTUAL.
We had hoped to be able to gather once again in person to recognize and honor the great work being done in our Minneapolis and St. Paul neighborhoods. However, given the current COVID-19 situation, the BLEND Awards Committee is not comfortable hosting an in-person ceremony. We simply do not have confidence we could create a safe setting for all in September. Therefore...
A video announcing the 2021 BLEND & EcoBLEND Award winners will be posted here and on the BLEND Awards Facebook page at 6 pm.
We are honored to have Kathleen Kullberg, House Historian (If Your Walls Could Talk), as our virtual keynote speaker for this year's ceremony. We will also post her pre-recorded remarks here and on our Facebook page on Sept 20.
There will be no live component of the Awards ceremony.
Thank you for your understanding.
