Category Descriptions

CITIZEN OF THE YEAR: We're looking for any person who has gone above and beyond, whether through their words or actions, for Walker County. Nominees can be students, volunteers or dedicated workers in their field. Citizen of the Year nominees will also be taken from all submissions in the following categories as well. EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR: We're looking for any public, private or university employee — teacher or staff member. We want to recognize the educator for their service to students, service to the community, hardships, or any other thing that makes them worthy of the title. PUBLIC SERVANT OF THE YEAR: This is any person who, through their work, is a public servant of any or all of Walker County. They can be firemen, police and sheriff's officers, social workers, TDCJ officers, religious leaders, elected official or any other public servant. We want to honor them for outstanding service to the community. ORGANIZATION OF THE YEAR: We want to recognize the organizations and volunteers that make Walker County a better place to live. UNSUNG HERO OF THE YEAR: This is the everyman who goes the extra mile without ever receiving recognition. These folks go above and beyond to help their neighbors, family, and other members of the community and would otherwise go unnoticed. Individuals in this category likely will not fit in any of the other categories. VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR: Let us know of outstanding volunteerism and service to the community.
