HDSA National Awards

It’s that time of year when we ask you to nominate the extraordinary individuals, families and organizations in your community for one of our 2023 National Awards. HDSA National Awards embody the very best qualities of our founders, Woody and Marjorie Guthrie, as well as the strength and resilience of the HD community.

Those who receive an HDSA National Award are special; they represent the spirit of our community and the drive to do something about HD.  Change begins when one person recognizes that they CAN make a difference! 

Who is that exceptional person or organization in your life? Help us to recognize these outstanding community leaders and volunteers who have given so much to your community and to HDSA as an organization.

Please take a few moments to nominate that someone in YOUR community who supports HD families everyday through their words and their actions. Why are you nominating them? What special qualities do they have that sets them apart from others? How have their actions changed the lives of HD families in your community? Tell us about them so we can see them as you do.
