The award provides a welcome forum to recognize those who have risen to the occasion at a time of great strife.  Nominations should include a biography along with a brief description of the reasons why the person deserves to be nominated. The nominations may be submitted either via email to [email protected] or by contacting the Vice Mayor’s office at 954-602-3143.  All nominations should be received by Thursday, June 10, 2021.
