Every year since 1991, in a unique local tradition, the City Club of Eugene honors one or more civic leaders through the Turtle Award, for “sticking their necks out” to achieve an important goal. Turtle Award winners have demonstrated the strong beliefs, vision, and courage required to persevere in a risk-prone venture for the good of the whole community. Turtles are people who do what needs doing quietly, without fanfare or recognition.
