Over the years, siblings have told us how much they depend on and appreciate quality caregivers who really care about their brothers and sisters. So, in 2009, we developed two Sibling’s Choice awards to acknowledge and honor caregivers across the state who do an outstanding job of promoting the independence and quality of life of a person with a disability. Nominations are only accepted from brothers or sisters of individuals with disabilities.
Siblings of any age can nominate caregivers, either family or professional. Nominations must be submitted by October 1 each year. Winners are announced at the annual Celebrate Sisterhood luncheon held in mid-October at the Radisson Paper Valley in Appleton with emcee, Bill Jartz.
