District looks for 'Snow Star' nominations

The District of West Kelowna is looking for nominations to recognize those who have used their snow shovels for good this winter.

The district created the Snow Star program in December to celebrate residents who go out of their way to help with the dreaded chore of shovelling snow, without being asked or expecting thanks.

Keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice can be a challenge for many residents; the Snow Star program was created to ensure that good Samaritans are recognized for their selfless acts each winter.

The deadline to nominate a Snow Star is Saturday, March 15.

To nominate a Snow Star, send the District of West Kelowna a letter, e-mail or fill in an application form to nominate an individual for their chance to win a prize, which will be drawn at random at the end of the season.

To be eligible, the nominee must be a West Kelowna resident.

For more information and to download a nomination form, visit districtofwestkelowna.ca and select Residents/Snow Star Program.
