Awards ranging from $500 to $5,000 to USA individuals to recognize those delivering high-quality social services in their local community. Eligible applicants are those who inspire, motivate, and support their clients, as well as utilize data to create intended outcomes.

Partner Superstar Awards
In 2015, the Superstar Foundation expanded beyond the Veronica Awards and began to work with other organizations interested in elevating high performance on the front lines of this work. Using the same online nomination process and scoring tools honed over the past eight years, partners are able to easily identify their own "Superstars" — whether internal to an organization or based in a region or among a group of grantees.

By partnering with organizations that share its belief in the power of using data to drive better services and outcomes, the Superstar Foundation hopes to continue to expand the potential pool of nominees for Veronica Awards and advocate for high performance.

Partner "Superstar" Awards are always accompanied by a check written directly to the direct service worker who demonstrates high performance. The awards range from $500 to $5,000 and the Superstar Foundation will either match (in the case of an organization) or fully fund (in the case of funders or other intermediary groups) the award amount in the first year.

Additionally, strong Partner "Superstar" Award winners are considered for Veronica Awards.
