The Westminster Legacy Foundation is seeking nominations for the second annual Community Awards Banquet, scheduled for April 25.
Nominations are open until Jan. 31 and include awards to businesses, individuals and organizations that have contributed to the community and community members.
The Foundation started the award banquet last year after a group of citizens got together and decided to honor outstanding community members.
“This came about from a collection of board and community members coming together to decide we wanted to honor individuals and businesses in the community that were making a difference,” said Lauren Werner, executive director of the Westminster Legacy Foundation.
Seven awards were given last year, in various categories, including the Citizen of the Year award, which was bestowed upon 5th grader Addison Ginther, for her volunteer efforts with A Precious Child, the Precious Gift program and a desire to help fellow students, strangers and her community.
“You never know what nominations will come up,” said Werner. “Everyone is encouraged to apply, regardless of age. Only one category—The Young Citizen of the Year, has an age limit, and you must be under the age of 21.”
The Foundation prefers electronic submissions, which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, but will also accept nominations via postal service, as long as they are received by Jan. 31 by the end of the day. Hard copies can be mailed to 4800 West 92nd Avenue, Westminster, CO 80031.
Categories for nomination include:
The Young Citizen of the Year Award—Must be under 21 years of age and focused on improving the Westminster community through their service to others.
The Citizen of the Year Award—Must reside in Westminster with significant achievements throughout the calendar year immediately prior to the award.
The Corporate Citizen of the Year Award—Companies or individuals who have demonstrated a strong commitment to corporate responsibility practices and bettering the lives of those in our community.
The Arts and Culture Award—Individuals or organizations that represent the best of Westminster’s cultural and artistic scene.
The Health and Human Services Hero Award—Honors those who have touched the lives of others through their advocacy, dedication, service, volunteerism and support in the community.
The Nature Environment and Sustainability Award—Given to an individual or business that has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to improving and protecting the natural environment in Westminster.
The Nancy Heil Lifetime Achievement Award—The most prestigious award recognizes a Westminster resident that has made lifelong contributions of lasting significance to the Westminster Community.
