Default Interior

Mayor Hilda MacDonald and Leamington Council have launched a new Mayor’s Recognition Awards program to recognize and honour individuals, groups and organizations whose efforts have brought honour and recognition to the Municipality of Leamington.

“Leamington is full of change-makers,” said Mayor Hilda MacDonald. “I wanted to create an annual awards program that instills pride, encourages everyone to contribute, and acknowledges and thanks citizens for their meaningful contributions to our community.”

This year’s Mayor’s Recognitions Awards program will recognize citizens who have made a meaningful contribution or have had a significant achievement in one of the following categories during the 2020 calendar year:

  • Athletics Award
  • Outstanding Youth Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Distinguished Volunteer Service Award
  • Community Inspiration Award
  • Mayor’s Special Award

Award recipients will be selected by the Mayor’s Recognition Awards Committee, with the exception of the Mayor’s Special Award recipient, which is selected by the Mayor.

The award winners will be honoured at a special Council meeting in November.

Nominations for the Mayor’s Recognition Awards will be open from August 1, 2021 to September 15, 2021. For more information about the awards and to submit a nomination, visit leamington.ca/awards.
