(CBS) — Months of hard work will soon be rewarded next week.
The 22nd annual Chicago Neighborhood Development Awards will honor outstanding work in community development and architectural achievement.
Caroline Goldstein with neighborhood resources giant LISC Chicago, says the selection process is never easy.
“Organizations put in their applications and we have about 100 volunteers representing all different areas of community development to help us review those applications go out and meet with folks, visit projects,” Goldstein said.
Goldstein says there will be six community development awards, three architectural awards and two awards for personal achievement.
The ceremony will take place February 18 at the Chicago Hilton and Towers.
