Westminster community award calls for nominations

Westminster Legacy ceremony set for April 30

Posted

The Westminster Legacy Foundation annual community awards ceremony is looking for nominations of community members that strive to do their best for the community.

The Foundation is hosting its third annual Community Awards Breakfast April 30. Everyone is invited to nominate individuals, businesses and organizations that work to make the Westminster community thrive.

Past honorees include Vi June, Westminster’s first female mayor, and Greg Mastriona, the man responsible for Water World and more than 27 parks in the Westminster and Hyland Hills communities.

Individuals, organizations and businesses will be recognized in seven categories:

The Nature Environment and Sustainability Award can be given to an individual or business that has demonstrated a remarkable commitment to improving and protecting the natural environment in Westminster.

The Health and Human Services Hero Award was created to honor those who have touched the lives of others through their advocacy, dedication, service, volunteerism and support in the community.

The Arts and Culture Award recognizes an individual or organization that represents the best of Westminster’s cultural and artistic scene.

The Corporate Citizen Award highlights companies or individuals that have demonstrated a strong commitment to corporate responsibility practices and bettering the lives of those in our community.

The Citizen of the Year is an individual residing in Westminster with significant achievements throughout the calendar year immediately prior to receiving the award.

The Young Citizen of the Year is awarded to an individual under 21 years of age who is focused on improving the Westminster community through their service to others.

The group’s most prestigious honor, the Nancy Heil Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizes a Westminster resident that has made lifelong contributions of lasting significant to the Westminster community.

To read more about the categories or nominate someone, go to westyfoundation.org/communityawards on the internet. Nominations are due Jan. 31.

The winners will be recognized at the April 30 Community Awards Breakfast at the Westin Westminster Conference Center.

The Westminster Legacy Foundation was founded in 2001 by then-Westminster Mayor Nancy Heil and has donated more than $1 million back to the community and led fundraising efforts for the Armed Forces Tribute Garden, Jessica Ridgeway Memorial Park, and the Nature Playground at Westminster Station Park.
