Recognize Someone is a program created by Ryan Rivas and the team at Bennett Awards. Bennett Awards is a sculpture studio with over 40 years of experience in creating unique, handcrafted awards. We feel honored to have designed and created recognition awards for a blue-chip list of clients, including many Fortune 500 corporations and leading nonprofit organizations. Our award recipients include a wide range of notable figures, including globally-recognized politicians, entertainers, humanitarians, and philanthropists. It has always brought us great joy to see these outstanding individuals and organizations receive the recognition they deserve.
However, in the course of doing business, we realized that there were many “every-day heroes” that didn’t receive this same level of recognition, but deserved to. The acts and contributions of these individuals often go unrecognized simply because there isn’t a platform to provide them with the recognition and thanks that they merit. To address this, we decided to create the Recognize Someone program. We are excited that this program will finally provide the vehicle for recognizing these deserving, unsung heroes.
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
