Outstanding Citizenship Award

PURPOSE


Outstanding Citizen Award
Throughout our Town’s history, volunteers have donated countless hours to improve the quality of life in Flower Mound. The success of any community is built upon the efforts of individuals committed to serving their community with the desire to make it a better place to live, work and play.


The Outstanding Citizenship Award is designed to recognize, an outstanding individual or group each year, that demonstrates exemplary service to the community. The Town is fortunate to have a longstanding tradition of hardworking volunteers and this award aims to recognize those who have given unselfishly of themselves in service to others.

CRITERIA AND NOMINATIONS


Anyone may nominate an individual or group for the Outstanding Citizenship Award. To qualify for this recognition award, the nominee must be a Flower Mound resident, or group located within the Town, and should display or meet two of the following criteria:
  • Strive to make a positive impact in the community
  • Enhance the Flower Mound community and the lives of its citizens
  • Address or fulfill a community need or concern

Nominations are accepted throughout the year and nomination forms are available at Town Hall and online and will be considered for up to one year after the initial submittal. The deadline to submit your nomination and supporting documents for recognition in the current year is the last business day in October  of each year.

The nominator is responsible for submitting a complete application with all pertinent details. It is important that you provide as much information as possible about the nominee, and explain their contribution and describe how they impacted the overall community of Flower Mound. Please feel free to send examples of the nominee’s work (e.g. videos, photographs, etc.).
