Vermont - S. Whitney Landon Awards


The S. Whitney Landon Awards are presented each year, in Vermont, for programs which have achieved breakthrough results in the delivery of services to the youngest at-risk children, and their families, using innovative and creative strategies.

These agencies generally have been active with the early childhood system in their community and advocate at the local, regional, state and/or national level for the well-being of our youngest children and their families.

Year 2018 was the twenty-third year of the Awards! In each year of the competition, the top award winner receives $25,000. Runners-up receive $2,500. Consideration for this award happens each April.
