NICCI Awards
Northern Ireland Community Cooperation Initiative (NICCI)
National Awards Program
Designed, Produced and Directed by: Michael J. Whitely
Administrative Coordinator: Linda Conroy

National awards program established to recognize the grass-roots efforts of cross-community groups and individuals throughout Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.  The Kent State University model was created as a vehicle to encourage cross-community collaboration throughout the island.  In its pilot stage, the NICCI awards presented 27 model-of-the-year trophies and over 100 special achievement plaques to individuals and organizations throughout the country.  Built on the Blomgren principal (1979), awards foster positive outlooks towards new behavior and can also be used to reinforce those new behaviors.
