ABOUT THE 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, REALTORS® commissioned Seattle artist Dudley Pratt to sculpt an expression of the great work that can be accomplished by those who support the needs of the people, a work emblematic of “those who seek first to serve our citizens.” Each year since, the Seattle King County REALTORS® have presented the First Citizen Award as an expression of gratitude to those who devote themselves to the well-being and prosperity of our community.

First Citizen recipients hail from humanitarian organizations, charitable and educational institutions, art groups, environmental causes and other civic endeavors.
