TNT Award - shortlist
The author, Leo Buscaglia, once said "too often we underestimate the importance of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment or the smallest act of caring – all of which has the potential to turn a life around".
Often the biggest impacts are made by the smallest actions, hence the TNT or Tiny Noticeable Things’ award for a project or person that has embodied this sentiment

Penguin Award - shortlist
Sometimes a problem or issue is too challenging or substantial to be overcome by just 1 person.
Penguins have known this and demonstrate the most extraordinary teamwork so as to protect themselves from adversity – from forming dense gravity-centric groups to defeat the worst of an Antarctic winter to combining with effortless grace and coordination to outwit a prowling killer whale.
You decide whether your team has delivered something worthy of the Penguin Teamship Award!

Hartley Larkin Award - shortlist
On the night of May 7th 1765 Hartley Larkin, a dockyard foreman at Chatham marine docks was deeply troubled. HMS Victory was to be launched the next morning in a fanfare ceremony and he had just had a terrible thought. Victory was 9.5 inches wider than the dock exit. Acting entirely on initiative, he convened a gathering of shipwrights and carpenters who set to work cutting away the docks timbers.
Victory launched on time, squeezing through the narrowest gap. Larkin and his team, quite simply, had done what needed to be done. If this has resonated with you via the parallels with your recent project, then a fanfare could be yours!

Rosa Parks Award
On December 1st 1955, Rosa Parks, a 42 year old African American woman who worked as a seamstress, boarded a bus in Montgomery City, Alabama and took a seat in the row behind the 10 seats at the front reserved for white people.
Soon all of the seats in the bus were filled and when a white man entered the bus the driver (following standard practice) insisted that Rosa and her 3 other black passengers just behind the white section give up their seats in order to accommodate him. Her 3 fellow travellers complied.
Rosa Parks did not – and fuelled a civil rights movement. If you have been brave enough to reject mindless conformity and find a new, inspiring and effective means of doing something, then this award is for you.
