Nominations sought for Brandon Sun Community Leader Awards
There are a large number of people who do a great deal of important work for western Manitoba, and the communities within which they live and work. They strive to create a better community by putting in countless volunteer hours, sometimes having to overcome insurmountable obstacles — and often ask for nothing in return.
These individuals are truly community leaders and can be found in schools, on a sports field, in care centres, at the food bank and many of the local events that take place in and around our community.
The Brandon Sun wishes to recognize our unsung heroes and honour their commitment and efforts in maintaining this growing community and helping to make Westman a better place. To that end, we are introducing the first annual Community Leader Awards, and we need your help to make this mission a success!
If you know of someone you feel should be honoured in one of the 12 categories, we want to hear from you.
Deadline for nominations is: April 30th, 2017
The submission you provide should be approximately 250 words in length and include information such as: length of time nominee has spent in the community; specific examples of the work and/or contribution he/she has made; community associations and memberships. Please provide references of other individuals who may be able to provide further support on the nominee’s behalf.
