Which East County residents have been good citizens in 2009, striving to make our commuity or our world a better place? Please send us your nomination –along wih a one-paragraph description of why you believe your nominee is deserving of praise. We’re looking for nominees in all categories –including education, business and labor, politics, philanthropy, healthcare, environment, community organizing, humanitarian efforts, heroism, and any other categories you wish to suggest. We will publish winners in an upcoming issue of East County Magazine.
If you have a photo of your proposed honoree, please send it, preferably as an attached .jpeg file of less than half a megabyte. Deadline for entries is Tuesday, January 6th.
Editor’s note: For our newsmakers of the year, we’re seeking names of East County community members who achieved positive and newsworthy accomplishments in 2009. In other words, people who have been nice.
Scoundrels who made news in negative ways had their antics featured in a separate “Naughty Newsmakers” story. (Check our list--and if you think we missed any noteworthy scoundrels, feel free to post your comments with links in the “comments” section.)
We know there are many more people doing good deeds – so we’re asking your help to find them!
Questions, comments, and nominations should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
