WZM Award

With our 5th anniversary in 2010, the Jizo Peace Center began giving a Humanitarian Award annually to an individual or couple serving others in an extraordinary way. The Award consists of a plaque naming the recipient with a personal quote that looks nice on a wall or desk. People with local ties to the mountain communities are the majority of those honored.

Starting in 2015, at our 10th anniversary, a dinner celebrating the person and their life commitment has become the setting for the granting of the Award.

The Jizo Peace Center welcomes suggestions for possible recipients of the Humanitarian Award. The public is welcome to attend the annual dinner celebrations.
