The Vailsburg Day Awards Banquet is a time-honored tradition where residents and supporters come together to celebrate community accomplishments. On Saturday, April 20th at four o’clock in the evening, Unified Vailsburg Services Organization (UVSO) will join nearly 400 residents in celebrating Unified Hearts of Vailsburg.
Vailsburg Day unifies the neighborhood by recognizing individual achievements from community stewards of all ages. Ongoing positive actions and undertakings by residents and supporters are what make Vailsburg, Newark a special neighborhood and Vailsburg Day an important tradition.
Nominations for the Youth Achievement & Community Service Awards are accepted from neighborhood block association members, teachers, principals, and clergy. The Memorial Awards are named in honor of neighborhood pioneers who worked to stabilize Vailsburg and have passed on. These are:
- The Inaugural William “Bill” Watson Award for Sustainable Community Practices

- The Justice William J. Brennan Award for Public Service
- The Reverend Sean Booker Award for Faith Based Service
