Awards of Excellence 2020 - Nominate by March 29

Improving quality of life for others, supporting fellow community members during the COVID-19 pandemic, and diversifying our economy and protecting our environment are just a few ways individuals and groups are making a positive impact in Strathcona County. In recognition of these outstanding contributions and achievements, citizens are invited to nominate an individual or group for the 2021 Strathcona County Awards of Excellence.

“The past 12 months have been incredibly difficult on our community. Yet, I have been inspired time and time again by the actions, big or small, of so many who have stepped up to support one another. Paying tribute to those who bring recognition to the county through their actions strengthens the diversity, culture, economy and quality of life for all Strathcona County citizens,” says Mayor Rod Frank. “The Awards of Excellence program is our opportunity to recognize these extraordinary people for their contributions and their positive impact on our community.”

The 2021 Strathcona County Awards of Excellence categories are: Agricultural Leadership; Arts, Culture and Heritage; Community Service; Economic Diversification; Heroism and Leadership; Outstanding Group; Service to Seniors; and Youth.

This year’s award ceremony will take place virtually in June.

More information about the Awards of Excellence and the online nomination form are available at, or by calling 780-410-6595. Nomination forms can also be picked up at the Community Centre.
