About the Linz Award

PRESENTED BY

The Dallas Foundation

The Linz Award is one of the oldest and most prestigious civic honors presented to individuals whose community and humanitarian efforts have created the greatest benefit to Dallas during the last decade. This year commemorates the 90th annual celebration of the Linz Award. Both the award and its recipient continue to honor the spirit and heart of Dallas.

The honor was created in 1924 by Simon Linz, one of the original founders of Linz Jewelers. The award has been presented every year since then, with the exception of a five-year period during the Great Depression.
