The Alexandria Park and Recreation Commission is seeking nominations for the 2012 CIVIC Awards, which recognize the volunteer efforts of Alexandrians who are involved in their communities and who have provided a valuable service to Alexandria in meeting recreation, park or cultural needs.
Nominations must be received by June 14.
Individuals can nominate an Alexandria resident, group, club, organization or corporate neighbor. Nominees for the award should be volunteers who have contributed their time, talent, or resources in an exemplary fashion and who reside or are located in the city. The volunteer contribution can involve activities such as removing invasive plants, coaching youth or providing program support at city nature and recreation centers. Youth nominations are encouraged.
The CIVIC Awards are presented at the city’s annual USA/Alexandria Birthday Celebration on July 7 at Oronoco Bay Park, 100 Madison St. A nomination package is available online, or by calling 703-746-4343.
