ANNUAL AWARDS

Citizen of the Year nominations being accepted
Do you know someone who has gone above and beyond to serve the Smithville community this year? These folks are the planners, the organizers, and the volunteers that show up for everything. Often these folks fly under the radar because they are not looking for recognition; they are involved in our community because they want to be. A great way to acknowledge them would be to nominate them for the 2014 Smithville Citizen of the Year.

To nominate someone, print and fill out this FORM and bring it to the Chamber office by Jan. 31. Or the form can be scanned and emailed to chamber@smithvilletx.org.

NEW: Artist of the Year to be awarded

The Richard D. Latham Cultural District is seeking nominations for Smithville's Artist of the Year. Any artist operating or displaying/performing their artwork within the Cultural District area (within the entire Smithville city limits) is eligible. This includes any artist practicing in any medium from painting, sculpture, pastels, woodworking and pottery to performing arts such as theater, music and performance art to written word such as poetry, short stories and novels.  Turn in the FORM to the Chamber office or email by Jan. 31.

The winners of these awards and more will be announced at the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet & Awards Ceremony held on Saturday, Feb. 28th.

All nominations, nominees, and submitted forms are kept confidential and only seen by the judging committee.
