Townshippers’ Day is all about community which is built through the hard-working, and often under recognized, efforts of individuals giving that little bit extra to make the community better for us all. As a non-profit organization serving the English-speaking population, Townshippers’ Association is looking to celebrate and show our appreciation for the remarkable ways individuals, couples and groups are making the English-speaking community better with the Outstanding Townshippers and Young Townships Leader awards.

Think you know someone who deserves to be recognized? View the criteria below to see which category they fit into, then follow the links to Townshippers’ Association’s website to download or complete an online nomination. Awards will be handed out during Townshippers’ Day’s opening ceremonies.

Outstanding Townshippers Awards

Recognize the individuals, couples and groups, from all walks of life, who work passionately and collaboratively to make the Eastern Townships a better place to live, work and raise a family, by nominating them for the Outstanding Townshippers Award. Public nominations are accepted for those who have made considerable contributions — beyond the usual expectations of their job or profession, through volunteerism, social activism, mentioning, or philanthropy — to the life of the Eastern Townships English-speaking community, either within their local community or the Townships community as a whole.

ELIGIBILITY: Candidates must be or have been residents of the historical Eastern Townships and have made considerable contributions to the betterment of the historic Eastern Townships English-speaking community or their local community.  Nominations are prioritized according to long-term dedication, as well as new approaches and creativity in community service. Nominations are accepted for individuals, a couple or a group, of any age. Posthumous nominations are also accepted.

Young Townships Leader Award

Our young people are doing great things! Since 2005, the Young Townships Leader Award (YTLA) has served to highlight youth dynamism and involvement by celebrating young people who serve as role models to other youth as well as to adults. Help us encourage English-speaking youth to reach their full potential and become engaged in the community at large – culturally, socially and economically by nominating them for the YTLA (formerly known as Townships Leaders of Tomorrow Awards). In addition to reviving a certificate, one winner will also enjoy a cash prize thanks to local sponsors.

ELIGIBILITY: Candidates must be between the ages of 15 and 35 and have carried out actions or initiatives demonstrating leadership within the Townships English-speaking community over the past two years. Nominators can NOT be members of the nominee’s immediate family.

PARTICIPATE: To nominate a candidate, follow the link to visit Townshippers’ Association’s website

Nomination Deadline for both awards: Noon, Friday, August 26, 2016
