OGDENSBURG -- The Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for 2013 Citizen of the Year, the award to be made at their annual dinner Nov. 8.
Some of the criteria they will use in judging are: Is the service they do a part of their job? What kind of service do they do or offer? How long have they been doing this service? How many service projects are they involved in or have been involved in? How many people does their service work effect? Who does their service work effect (kids, seniors)? Are they creative? Are they able to motivate others?
The chamber is also accepting nominations for the Business Improvement Award. They are looking for a business that has had a profound positive impact on the community and its appearance by renovating and revitalizing an existing building into a thriving business enterprise of which the community can be proud. The winner is presented with a plaque that is displayed in City Hall.
The chamber is also accepting nominations for the Outstand Community Service Award. Traditionally this award goes to a person or group whose time and work into a project which benefits the entire community should be recognized.
Nomination deadline is Oct. 16. To submit a nomination, call 393-3620; or mail the chamber at 1 Bridge Plaza, Ogdensburg, NY; or email Sandy Porter at email@example.com.
