RCA Taking Nominations for Citizen of the Year

RCA LogoThe Reston Citizens Association has opened nominations for the 2014 Reston Citizen of the Year Award.

Each year, the Reston Citizens Association Board selects one person from the pool of nominations submitted by Reston citizens. Nominations are due by Friday, Feb. 20.

Nominations may be submitted online or by downloading the nomination form and submitting via postal mail or email as indicated on the nomination form.

The tradition of honoring the Reston Citizen of the Year 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 through their hard work and dedication to the Reston community.

Here’s what it takes to be a candidate for RCA’s Citizen of the Year:

  • The nominee has been a Reston resident for at least five years.
  • The nominee’s actions are consistent with the goals of Reston, and of RCA.
  • The nominee’s actions have contributed to the quality of life in Reston.
  • People in need of help have benefited from the nominee’s actions.
  • The nominee’s deeds were done without thought of personal benefit or recognition.
  • The nominee is not currently serving as an elected public official or a member of the Board of a major community organization (RA, RCA, or RCC).

The Reston Citizen of the Year will be honored at a special reception in the spring of 2015.

Past RCA Citizen of the Year honorees include Sen. Janet Howell, Rev. Embry Rucker, Reston Association CEO Cate Fulkerson and library activist Kathy Kaplan.
