    There are three community awards;
    The Summerland Youth Leadership Award is purposed to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements and dedication of the youth in our community who have made a significant contribution to their local or global community and who show initiative, enthusiasm, commitment with a positive attitude.
    The Arts & Culture Award recognize the vital role arts and culture contribute to the liveability of any community. This award recognizes and celebrates achievement and extraordinary contributions in and to the vibrant arts and culture scene in Summerland.
    The Citizen of the Year Award recognizes the great people that give of themselves to make Summerland a great community.  The list of past recipients is a veritable who’s who of the city’s finest citizens; people who lead by example and paved a brighter future for all.
    “It is crucial that we, as a community, recognize those individual that give so much to make Summerland the great community it is,” said Chamber Executive Director, David D. Hull. 
    “We see the out front public folk making a difference however there are a ton of people working quietly and tirelessly behind the scenes to make our community great.  It is important to look at all the contributors when making nominations.”
    Nominations for the Community Awards close February 22.  All three Community Award categories will be adjudicated by an independent panel.  “It is important that these awards are subjective and transparent and not a popularity contest.”
