Alexandria Park and Recreation
Commission Seeks Nominations for the 2015 CIVIC Awards
For Immediate Release: November 5, 2015
The City of Alexandria Park and Recreation Commission
announces its 30th annual awards program
to select and formally recognize outstanding residents who have provided a
valuable service to our community in meeting recreation or park needs. An Alexandria group, club, organization or
corporate neighbor may also be nominated for an award recognizing volunteer
service. Nominees for the award for
citizen, group, club, organization, or corporate neighbor should be volunteers
who have contributed time, talent or resources in an exemplary fashion. Youth nominations are encouraged. Whether the volunteer activity involves
removing invasive plants, coaching youth, or providing program support at City
nature and recreation centers, the CIVIC Awards recognize the special, unsung
volunteer efforts of Alexandrians involved in their community.
The primary purpose of the CIVIC Award is to recognize
exemplary voluntary efforts by citizens and is not available to individuals for
service in elected or appointed positions such as service on City Commissions,
working groups or similar entities. The
CIVIC award is also not given for volunteer work in cultural and artistic
pursuits because the City Arts Commission supports its own award program.
The awards will be presented before City Council in early
2016. A nomination package is available
online at www.alexandriava.gov/Recreation,
or by calling 703.746.4343.

may also be faxed to 703.684.6826, or submitted online at https://survey.alexandriava.gov/s3/CIVICAwards.
