Letter: Province seeks outstanding British Columbians for Medal of Good Citizenship

Nominations for the newly launched Medal of Good Citizenship are now being accepted.

Editor:

Nominations for the newly launched Medal of Good Citizenship are now being accepted for individuals who, through exceptional long-term service, have made outstanding contributions to the well-being of their communities without expectation of renumeration or reward.

The medal reflects their generosity, service, acts of selflessness and outstanding contribution to community life.

Nomination form and submission information are available from the Honours and Awards Secretariat in Victoria: 250-387-1616 or online at www.gov.bc.ca/medalofgoodcitizenship.

Completed nominations must be received by the Secretariat no later than Sept. 25, 2015, to be considered this year.

This is your opportunity to help showcase  the dedication and altruism of exceptional British Columbians in your community by urging your readers to nominate good citizens from their own backyard.

The process begins with a nomination.
