Launched by the Colorado Promoting Responsible Fatherhood Initiative and the Colorado Fatherhood Council in 2008, the Be There for Your Kids Awards recognize and reward outstanding individuals and program service in healthy father involvement with children, families and communities throughout Colorado. Individuals and programs from across the state that demonstrate excellence, consistency, creativity and leadership in serving fathers or in being a father are eligible to receive a Be There for Your Kids Award each year. Awards are distributed based on how well the nominee meets the criteria and serves to promote and/or support fatherhood in Colorado.

Twenty-six Be There for Your Kids Awards have been distributed to well-deserving fathers and fatherhood programs since 2008. From Sterling to Cortez, these awards have served as a great way to promote fatherhood statewide.
