About the Prize

RWJF Culture of Health Prize

A Culture of Health recognizes that health and wellbeing are greatly influenced by where we live, work, the safety of our surroundings, and the relationships we have in our families and communities. The Prize elevates the compelling stories of local leaders and community members who are coming together to create conditions for health and prosperity by transforming neighborhoods, schools, and businesses—so that good health flourishes everywhere.

In this fifth round of the Prize competition, up to 10 winning communities will:

  • Receive a $25,000 cash prize;
  • Have their stories and successes celebrated broadly to inspire others toward locally-driven change;
  • Engage with other national and community leaders as ambassadors for building a Culture of Health across America; and,
  • Join a Prize Alumni Network to learn with other Prize winners and network locally, regionally, and nationally.

The Prize is awarded annually by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. Applications will be judged based on the criteria below.
