Each year, residents gather to celebrate the unsung heroes in the Middle Smithfield Township community and choose a Person of the Year.
The Person of the Year award recognizes Middle Smithfield residents who have made a positive difference in the world and highlight the importance of altruism, philanthropy and community service. The recipient of the award will receive $1,500 towards their cause, while two finalists will receive $1,000 each toward their cause. The winners will each be decided by an independent panel of judges.
Nominees must be unpaid volunteers who live in and/or volunteer in Middle Smithfield Township.
Nominees must volunteer for a minimum of one year, at least 170 hours per year, and reside in or volunteer in Middle Smithfield Township and benefit the community in a substantial, important or unique way.
Nominated volunteers must have provided service during the 2021 or 2022 calendar year; however, service provided prior to this year can also be included.
All Nominations are subject to verification.
