Do you know someone that deserves to be recognized for what they do for the community? If so, this is your opportunity to nominate them for the 2017 Citizen of the Year Awards, sponsored by the Mayor and City Council. There are seven categories for Rock Island Citizens; Business, Professional, Education, Individual, City Employee, Organization and Youth. There is a special category for someone that does not live in Rock Island but has contributed to the good of the community. This person/organization is not eligible for the overall Citizen of the Year award, but may be nominated as the Honorary Citizen of the Year.
Go to www.rigov.org/COY for more information and to nominate a person or organization via an online form. Please include the nominee’s address and telephone number so they may be contacted. It is important to include your name and telephone number so we may contact you for additional information if necessary. The deadline for receiving nominations is June 9, 2017. You may nominate more than one person for the award.
