Celebrating service in our local community
Seattle King County First Citizen Award
In 1939, years of economic hardship during the Great Depression had taken a toll on the spirit and morale of the people of Seattle. In response, REALTORS® sought to boost public sentiment and brighten our outlook by drawing attention to the positive community and civic work taking place throughout the region. To that end, the Seattle King County REALTORS® present the First Citizen Award every year as an expression of gratitude to those who devote themselves to the well-being and prosperity of our community.
First Citizen Scholarship Foundation
The First Citizen Scholarship Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization that gives annual educational scholarship awards to REALTORS® and their family members who demonstrate the ideals of the First Citizen Award.
The primary fundraising event for the Foundation is the Battle of the Barristers, an annual clock-hours class that features a panel of real estate attorneys analyzing relevant legal issues.
Good Neighbor Awards
Every quarter Seattle King County REALTORS® honors a REALTOR® who dedicates their time and talent to non-profit organizations in our area. Winners are awarded with a $500 check to their chosen non-profit and entered to win the annual award, presented at the Awards & Installation Banquet.
