PORT ANGELES — The deadline is looming for nominations for the 2023 Clallam County Community Service Awards.

Nominations for recognition of people who have made significant contributions to the Clallam County community are due by 5 p.m. Monday.

The awards, presented by the Peninsula Daily News and the Soroptimist International of Port Angeles-Noon Club, will be presented at an evening reception on May 18.

Nominations must be made using the accompanying coupon and must be submitted to the PDN by the deadline.

Or a nomination can be made using the coupon at https://www.peninsuladailynews.com/community-service-award.

A letter describing the merits and accomplishments of the person being nominated must be included with the coupon.

The nomination should include supporting documents, such as copies (not originals) of other awards, newspaper articles or letters of support.

Anyone who lives in Clallam County can be nominated. Recipients of the Community Service Award in the past are not eligible for a 2023 award. Those previously nominated but not selected for a Community Service Award are eligible for renomination.

A panel of judges will review the nominations and select one to seven people to receive a Community Service Award.

The awards are an opportunity for residents of Clallam County to nominate those who have shown dedication, compassion and selflessness in serving their communities.

Past recipients of the Community Service Award have organized community efforts to clean up waterways, served as literacy tutors, raised money for the disabled, protected animals, organized food programs for the hungry, aided crime victims and their families, founded a cancer survivor support group, built a playground for special-needs children and were instrumental in the creation of teen activity centers.

If you have any questions about the program, phone PDN Publisher Terry Ward at his direct number, 360-417-3500 (if he’s not in, leave a voicemail), or email Ward at tward@peninsuladailynews.com.
