Nominate someone deserving

Why not honour a volunteer with a nomination for a City of Kelowna Civic and Community Award?

There are heroes among us who volunteer with purpose and with heart and make our community the type of place where we want to live, work and play.

Do you know someone like that? Yes, you do.

Why not honour them with a nomination for a City of Kelowna Civic and Community Award?

This opportunity starts with you. Please say to yourself: ‘I have time to do this because it is important.’

Here are the steps for nominating a man or woman of the year.

Get a nomination form and package information from the City of Kelowna website at www.kelowna.ca or pick one up at City Hall or Parkinson Recreation Centre.

Fill in the nomination form and write a one-page letter explaining why you think this person deserves to be recognized.

Get three other people to each write a one-page letter that tells what they know about the individual’s volunteer contribution.

Sit down with the person you want to nominate and create a summary of where that person has volunteered, what they have done, the number of hours volunteered and the impact their work has made.

The entire package of information that you hand in (including the form) cannot be more than eight pages.

The man and woman of the year will be someone involved in recreation, the arts, environment, education, humanities, community service, medial, business or commercial fields.

Nominees must not have profited personally from their activities, nor should their efforts have been part of their normal job responsibilities.

It is an honour to be nominated, to be selected as a finalist and to attend the gala which will be on May 1, 2013 at the Kelowna Community Theatre.

Do your part. Drop off a completed nomination package at Parkinson Recreation Centre by noon on Feb. 1.
