(BLOOMINGTON) - Monroe County Airport was named the airport of the year by the Aviation Association of Indiana.

The annual honor goes to an establishment that promotes "aviation safety, education, economic development and corporate citizenship," according to an AAI press release.

The award includes a grant of $1,000 , which is to be donated to a local organization of the airport's choosing. Monroe County Airport's staff chose to give its cash prize to New Hope Family Shelter.

New Hope, which serves as a safe place for homeless families in Bloomington to stay, is funded through donations from members of the community, the release states. It is a nonprofit charity.

The formal and official presentation of the accolade will take place at 9 a.m. Thursday, when the award will be presented to the Monroe County Commissioners.
