Nomination deadline looms for Duncan awards

Know somebody worthy of celebration? Act fast.

The deadline for the City of Duncan’s annual awards is looming.

Folks only have until the end of September to nominate those they feel are most deserving of recognition by the City in the arenas of arts, sports and citizenship.

The Perpetual Arts Trophy recognizes individuals who have demonstrated excellence in the performing, literary or visual arts. In a change from previous years, the Cowichan Valley Arts Council will be reviewing this year’s nominations.

Music teacher Gia Jane earned the award last year.

The Perpetual Trophy for Excellence & Sportsmanship honours an individual or organization who has contributed significantly to sports or distinguished themselves in sportsmanship.

Council reviews the nominations in a closed meeting.

Last year soccer’s Glen Martin won the award.

The City’s Scroll of Honour Award celebrates individuals who have demonstrated at least 15 years of service in the Cowichan Valley. Council also chooses that recipient.

Long-time volunteer Marina Stanko was last year’s winner.

Nomination forms can be found on the City’s website.

The nominees must live within Duncan or the Cowichan Valley. The awards will be handed out at council’s annual general meeting in December. Each winner will be recognized by council and receive a keeper trophy, and be etched into Duncan’s history.
