City Council may also choose to recognize an individual with a Community Service award for making a major contribution in more than one of the above categories.

“The Civic Recognition Awards are an opportunity for the community to show its gratitude and appreciation to residents who are making a difference,” says Jeremy Thompson, Alderman Responsible for Civic Functions. “These awards are meant to acknowledge and recognize leadership, volunteerism, achievements and contributions, whether big or small.”

  • A brief biography / resume of nominee
  • A letter of support from each of the three nominators

  • A recent photograph of the nominee

Nominees may be residents of Medicine Hat, Redcliff or the County of Cypress as long as the extraordinary contribution(s) benefitted residents of Medicine Hat. The three nominators must be residents of Medicine Hat.
