Nominations are now being accepted online at HatsOffAwards.org until 5 p.m. on Friday, August 10.

All nominees will be recognized at a spirited, hat-themed cocktail reception on Tuesday, October 2, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Harriett Himmel Theatre in West Palm Beach. Award winners will be kept secret until that evening when they will be announced during the ceremony.

Award Categories

The public is invited to submit nominations in one or more of eight categories, including awards for organizations and individuals. Complete details are on the website.

A blue ribbon panel of 42 community leaders in the public and private sectors will select the winners. Two live awards will also be announced at the event. Guests will be invited to vote on the People’s Choice Award, which will acknowledge the nominee that gets the most votes.  Also, judges will be scouting for creativity when they select a winner of the Best Hat Award.
