Nominations for the Town of New Tecumseth Virtual Wall of Honour are now open.

Established in 2016, the Wall of Honour celebrates individuals for outstanding contributions to the Town of New Tecumseth and is recognized on an annual basis.

Inductees will be celebrated at a council meeting or an event determined by council.

To be eligible for nomination, a candidate must be a resident of the Town of New Tecumseth or an individual who volunteers or has significantly contributed to the life of the Town of New Tecumseth, positively impacting the lives of its citizens.

Nominees can be submitted posthumously. No activities or achievements related to political appointments are eligible. No town staff member is eligible in connection with their employment position or sitting politician.

Individuals may not nominate themselves or family members.

Nominators must use the prescribed Virtual Wall of Honour nomination form, which can be completed online or picked up at the Administration Centre. Nomination submissions will be considered up to March 31 each year.

All nominations, whether from an individual or an organization, must include the name and address of the person or persons submitting the nomination.

All nominees should have a distinguished, well-rounded record of community service demonstrated through participation and leadership in and for various community organizations and institutions, which has positively impacted the lives of citizens of New Tecumseth and has significantly contributed to the town through voluntary service.

The nomination should also include a biography of the nominee, including the nominee’s contributions to the town and the nominee’s volunteer contributions. It should also contain a professional-quality colour or a black-and-white, 8×10 photograph of the nominee.

All nominations submitted before March 31 of each year will be brought forward by a confidential report to the council.
