Guymon, Oklahoma – Get out your pen and paper! Nominations for the Citizen of the Year are now open.
Each year the Guymon City Council asks for the residents of Guymon to nominate someone special in the community as the “Citizen of the Year.” The recipient is awarded a plaque by the Mayor of Guymon during the annual Chamber of Commerce banquet which will be held October. In addition, the winner receives $500 from the F. Hiner Dale Award Fund to donate to the non-profit organization of his or her choice. This fund was started by the Dale family to recognize and award one person each year for their outstanding dedication and service to the Guymon community.
If you are a resident of Guymon and know of someone that lives in Guymon that has given their time and talents to special projects or organizations, please send in their name, contact information, and a brief biography and account of their history and service to the Guymon community. Nominations can be emailed, mailed or delivered to the City of Guymon Community Development or you can fax the nomination to the Community Development office at 338-1854.
Nominations will only be accepted until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2014. Nominations received after that time will not be accepted.
Nominations will be reviewed and voted on by City Council through a secret ballot, and the winning recipient will receive his or her award at the annual Chamber of Commerce Banquet on October 21.
