Outstanding Citizen Award

Do you know of someone making a positive impact in your community? Someone who's gone unrecognized for all the great things they have done and continue to do to make the City a better place? Every year Columbia Heights seeks nominations for Outstanding Citizen (formally Humanitarian of the Year), and the City needs your help finding the best nominees. The City will award the title to both an adult and youth resident, so please consider residents for ages 14-18, and ages 18+ for your nominations.

The nomination period for 2020 is now closed. Nomination forms from previous years are not retained and therefore cannot be considered. Please contact the Communications Coordinator at 763-706-3615 with questions.
