Nominations Open for 2015 Reston Citizen of the Year Award

by John Hanley, RCA Citizen of the Year Committee Chair

Reston Citizens Association has opened nominations for the 2015 Reston Citizen of the Year Award. The tradition of honoring the Reston Citizen of the Year began in 1976, and was reintroduced in 2008 as a way to spotlight the work of dedicated citizen volunteers and civic activists who work tirelessly behind the scenes, providing them the recognition and appreciation they have earned.

Each year, the Reston Citizens Association Board selects one person from the pool of nominations submitted by Reston citizens. Nominations are open from today, Friday, February 5, 2016 and close on Friday, February 19, 2016. Nominations may be submitted online or by downloading the nomination form and submitting it via postal mail or email as indicated on the nomination form.
