Jax Boldest award goes to Jax Kids Book Club

The public has spoken, votes have been tallied, and the Jax Kids Book Club has been awarded one of ‘JAX Boldest.’ JAX Boldest is a contest that was hosted by the JAX Chamber and JAXUSA Partnership, which sought to uncover and celebrate new companies, non-profits and projects making bold achievements in our region.

Voted on by the community, the top entries were unveiled during an awards ceremony immediately following the Northeast Florida Regional Economic Development Forum. The winners for each category include:

Company –, Guidewell Health and Wellness Company and the Law Offices of John Phillips

Non-profit – Pit Sisters Rescue, Rethreaded and Wounded Warrior Project

Project – Adventure Landing’s Winterfest 2011, Jacksonville Superfest and Jax Kids Book Club

The ceremony took place at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens. Mayor Alvin Brown and Wally Lee, president at the Jacksonville Regional Chamber of Commerce met with guests and presented awards, along with other honored guests. Information about each of the winners can be viewed on the JAX Boldest website at

The contest is part of the #ilovejax campaign that celebrates all of the great things about the JAX region and encourages citizens to talk about the city and region to family, friends, colleagues and visitors outside of the region.
