City seeking nominations for citizen of the year

If you know a young person or a citizen who has made a significant impact in Red Deer, it’s time to nominate them to be recognized for their contribution.

If you know a young person or a citizen who has made a significant impact in Red Deer, it’s time to nominate them to be recognized for their contribution.

The City of Red Deer is asking for nominations for both the citizen of the year and the young citizen of the year. The awards will be presented at the Rotary spring gala in Red Deer on May 9.

The criteria to nominate someone for the citizen of the year award includes a lengthy service to the community outside of the parameters of one’s employment, a legacy created and the impact created in the community.

While the citizen of the year award honours those with a lengthy contribution to the community, the young citizen of the year honours those who haven’t lived that long yet.

Restricted to those under the age of 26, the young citizen of the year award is open to people who have demonstrated leadership commitment and demonstrated community service commitment.

Both awards ask the nominators to discuss the breadth of the impact the nominee has, as well as their residency and personal background.

Nominations should be submitted in writing to Jim Slipp of AndersonSlipp Chartered Accountants at #106, 4320 50th Ave. Red Deer, Alberta, T4N 3A6. Nominations must be received by April 11, 2014.

For more information on submissions details visit www.rotaryclubofreddeer.ca.
