If you know someone whose community achievements deserve an award, get your nomination in by Nov. 15.
The B.C. Community Achievement Awards are open to people who work hard in areas such as arts and culture, sports and recreation, multiculturalism, environment, health care, education, civic duty, business innovation, community volunteerism, philanthropy and youth or seniors leadership.
Information on nominations is at www.bcachievement.com, 604-261-9777 or toll free 1-866 882-6088.
“Each year, we encourage communities to consider their citizens who make a difference,” said Keith Mitchell, chairman of the B.C. Achievement Foundation, which administers the awards.
“Take the time to nominate the special people who contribute to your communities — either as a volunteer or in the course of their work — and who inspire by their example.”
Recipients are selected by an independent advisory council of community leaders based on the nominee’s contribution to the community. They will be honoured at a ceremony held at Government House in Victoria in spring 2014, where they will receive a medallion designed by First Nations artist Robert Davidson.
