Take a look around — at school, in the library, at church or on the field. There are young stars everywhere and they deserve to be recognized for their hard work. These stars are making a difference, inspiring others and building community.
Nominate them today for the 2013 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year awards. The program strives not only to recognize the dozen or so outstanding people who will be the recipients of awards, but also gives deserving recognition in their own communities to hundreds of others. To achieve this, everyone nominated will receive a certificate of congratulations.
Nominations may come from anyone in the community who wishes to recognize a young individual for all they do.
Any resident of Ontario, age six to 17, is eligible to receive an Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award.
Nominees may be involved in worthwhile community service, special young people who are contributing while living with physical or psychological limitations, individuals who have performed acts of heroism or bravery in the past year. Recipients may also be good kids’ who show a commitment to make life better for others and do more than is normally expected of someone their age.
Nominations should document the activities of the nominee with letters, newspaper clippings, recommendations and photographs.
Nominations will be accepted until Nov. 30. Nomination forms can be found at www.ocna.org/juniorcitizen.
Up to 12 individuals will be recipients of an award. Final recipients will be announced on this website on Jan. 24. Contact Kelly Gorven at email@example.com or 905-639-8720 ext 221.
