The annual Community Builder Celebration began in 1979 as a way to recognize the young leaders of tomorrow and the achievements of today's community leaders.

Each year, the event honors and individual or couple with the Community Builder Award. To be eligible, honoree(s) must have demonstrated outstanding commitment to making the community a better place.
In addition to the Community Builder Award, Spurgeon Awards are presented to outstanding community leaders and/or organizations that serve as a role model for young people. The award was developed in honor of a leader in the development of the Exploring program, William H Spurgeon III.
Youth members in the Exploring program may apply for scholarships that are presented at the Community Builder Celebration.
