Nominate someone noteworthy for Dublin's Citizen of the Year

Residents who improved Dublin's quality of life will be honored at a special event in 2020

Nominations are now being accepted for the city of Dublin's Citizen of the Year, as well as several other awards celebrating residents who made noteworthy contributions to the city's quality of life over the past year.

In addition to Citizen of the Year, the city is soliciting nominations for Young Citizen of the Year, which recognizes the volunteer work of Dublin youths, and Organization of the Year.

Winners are selected based on five established nomination criteria: the project's overall uniqueness and originality; its relevance and importance to the community; how much time and effort was spent; challenges faced in completing the activity, and the Dublin Integrity In Action's 10 Characteristics, which include responsibility, respectfulness, caring, giving, positive attitude, trustworthiness, cooperation, doing one's best, honesty, and self-discipline.

Winners will be announced at a Volunteer Recognition Event on Feb. 19 at Shannon Community Center. The Organization of the Year will receive a $500 cash prize and a $300 donation will be made to the Citizen and Youth Citizen of the Year's favorite charitable organization.

Nomination forms are available online at and can be submitted until Jan. 17 at 5 p.m. For more information, contact the City Manager's Office at 833-6650.
