The time has come once again to recognize individuals that make a difference in the lives of those around them.
Nominations are being collected for the 2014 British Columbia Community Achievement Awards. The awards recognize individuals who contribute and improve life in their communities either through their work or by volunteering.
"Each year, we encourage communities to consider their citizens who make a difference," said Keith Mitchell, chair of the BC Achievement Foundation. "Take the time to nominate the special people who contribute to your communities - either as a
volunteer or in the course of their work - and who inspire by their example."
An independent advisory council of community leaders selects around 30 recipients based on the nominee's contribution and commitment to the community. Recipients will be honoured at a ceremony held at Government House in Victoria in spring 2014 and awarded with a commemorative medallion designed by B.C. First Nations' artist Robert Davidson.
