Nominations underway for Laguna Niguel honor

March 31, 2014 by  

Nominations are now being accepted for Laguna Niguel’s 2013 Citizen of the Year.

Established in 1990, the prestigious award serves to recognize one or more citizens for making our community a better place to live and work through their voluntary service. The Citizen of the Year Committee will continue to accept nominations through April 30.

Among the qualifications are that nominees must reside in Laguna Niguel and perform their voluntary services here as well. Said service must be strictly voluntary and can include any of heroic, charitable, humanitarian, or outstanding service. Moreover, the service can either have occurred over a period of several years or entirely within the last year.

Both individuals and organizations are encouraged to make nominations, however, anonymous nominations will not be considered. The form needed to make a nomination can be found at the Laguna Niguel City Hall, Crown Valley Community Park, Sea Country Senior, and Community Center and South Coast YMCA. Alternately, the form can be downloaded from the City of Laguna Niguel website.

An award such as this one helps promote community service in general, as well as individual programs that benefit the community. Print companies are used by these programs to produce flyer printings and brochures to both promote the programs for those who can benefit from it, and the need to raise donations and procure volunteers.
