How both STAR and Community Awards work:

  • Select either the Community Award or STAR Award button and complete the form, including details of who you want to honor, a special message (optional), and contact information.
  • The FBE will create your personalized award and will deliver a print version to any work or home location within Belmont, MA.
  • For recipients without a Belmont address, the FBE will deliver awards to the Sender’s Belmont address for you to deliver personally.
  • If you would prefer an electronic version  of the award to be delivered, please be sure to add the correct email address for your recipient.
  • Your payment ($25 for one award of $100 for five awards)  is a direct donation to the FBE and will be used to fund innovative and enriching experiences for our Belmont Public School students.
