Stittsville Appreciation Award Nominations Open!


Time is quickly running out as the nomination period for the 9th Annual Stittsville Appreciation Awards closes April 16th.


Community contributions deserve recognition. I highly encourage all residents who would like to acknowledge one of our standout citizens, youth, senior or business to fill out an application form and bring their special contributions forward. It could be anyone – a neighbour, a friend, or even a family member – take the time to show someone that their contributions are appreciated!

Nominations must be received by Sunday April 16th!

The Roger Griffiths Memorial Citizen of the Year is awarded to an individual who best exemplifies community involvement and participation. The Senior of the Year is awarded in recognition of a senior citizen who has made a significant and long-standing contribution to our community. The Youth of the Year is presented to an individual who contributes leadership, volunteer service, serves as a peer example, and has overcome personal challenges or responds in an emergency situation.   The Business of the Year is awarded to a Stittsville business that has contributed significantly to our quality of life.


Last year’s winners include Jo-Anne Ilkiw, Phil Sweetnam, Ella Sultan, and Jo-Jo’s Pizza. This year, it could be someone you nominate! For further qualifications on these awards, I encourage you to visit my website.
