The deadline is fast approaching to nominate a deserving individual for the inaugural Community Leader Awards.
Presented by The Morning Star, the awards look to recognize and honour the commitment and efforts of those who are making a difference. The deadline to send in submission nominations is Tuesday, April 26.
“Entries are coming in and the quality coming in is amazing,” said Ian Jensen, Morning Star publisher. “But there are a lot of good people worth nominating out there so let’s get them in and give them the recognition they deserve.”
Individuals and organizations can nominate residents by writing an approximately 250-word submission about the nominee’s service and sending it to The Morning Star in person at 4407-25th Avenue, email to firstname.lastname@example.org or online via vernonmorningstar.com/contests.
There are 10 categories of nominations: Coach, Mentor, Courage, Above and Beyond, Emergency Service, Service Organization Volunteer, Volunteer, Youth Volunteer, Environmental Leader and Community Builder.
The top honour, as well as two honourable mentions, in each category will be celebrated at a special awards night in June.
