The City of St. Louis Park has established an Outstanding Citizen Award Program that is intended to provide the community with an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the contribution made by certain individuals who have worked and dedicated their time for the betterment of our community.
The city believes it is important to recognize St. Louis Park community members for extraordinary accomplishments, heroic and courageous efforts, and perseverance despite incredible odds. To honor these outstanding efforts, the city has developed a community recognition program to recognize and honor our Outstanding Citizens.
Nominations are based on the following criteria:
- The individual may be nominated by anyone. There are no restrictions on who can nominate the individual.
- A nomination form is provided by the city to serve as a cover and guideline for the submission of nominations. The nomination must include a statement by the nominator, either on the form or attached to it, specifically explaining why the nominated individual is worthy of receiving the award. The nomination must also include adequate supporting documents to substantiate the efforts and conditions under which they occurred. These may include official reports, stories, news articles, and information on any other awards or recognition for the incident.
- The total nomination submission may not exceed six pages (8.5” x 11”) of material in 12 pt. font.
- All nominations should be typewritten.
Nominations may be made any time. There is no deadline for submissions. If, in the judgment of the city, the nomination is incomplete, not adequately substantiated or illegible, it will be returned to the nominator for further information and resubmission. To receive additional consideration, it must be resubmitted within 30 days.
