Each month a winner is chosen by a Mountaire selection committee from submitted nominations.

Each winner receives a crystal engraved trophy. The Better Carolina Award winner is highlighted in print with the Fayetteville Observer Newspaper and on www.mountaire.com. The Better Delmarva Award winner is highlighted on a WMDT-TV commercial, on select WMDT web features and on www.mountaire.com.

Our goal is not only to recognize those who are already making a difference in the state of North Carolina and on the Delmarva Peninsula, but to encourage others to take on a greater role in bettering their local communities or improving the local environment. Anyone who is volunteering at community events, performing wonders in a local hospital, teaching in a classroom, helping the homeless, or something as simple as cleaning up the trash along our roadways can be a candidate for this award.

Please use the form below to nominate someone for the Mountaire Better Award. We also encourage you to send photos of the nominee in action.
