City of Destiny Awards Nominations Due February 1

City of Destiny Award nominations, recognizing Tacoma’s most exceptional volunteers in one of 10 categories, are due February 1, 2019.

“We are so honored and humbled to be able to get to know all of these wonderful volunteers and professionals in Tacoma each year,” said City Events and Recognitions Committee (CERC) Vice Chair Ashley Jones. “We carefully evaluate all nominations received, and ultimately select the individuals and groups who receive the awards. Awards are presented by members of the City Council and other City leaders during the City of Destiny Awards event, which we also spend months planning and producing.”

The annual City of Destiny Awards event is now 34 years in the making. More than 250 individuals and groups have walked across the stage as an award recipient, and with program enhancements made by the CERC, more are now eligible to be nominated. 

More information about the 34th Annual City of Destiny Awards is available at cityoftacoma.org/cityofdestiny, by emailing cityofdestiny@cityoftacoma.org, or by calling (253) 573-2523.
