The annual Shining Stars Community Awards Celebration (now in its’ 45th year) will be held this year on Friday May 3rd. This gala event recognizes and honors Tigard citizens who demonstrate excellence and community leadership in business, volunteer activities and educational achievement. The semi-formal, evening dinner event, celebrates our vibrant Tigard community and the individuals who make it so with a silent auction, entertainment and awards, including the Jim Nicoli Youth Volunteer Award, Tigard’s First Citizen, a Tigard Volunteerism Award (From the Heart), $3,000 in scholarships to deserving high school seniors, Chamber Business of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year and Chamber Ambassador of the year.
Nominations will open shortly for Community Awards as well as Scholarship Applications. Stay tuned to the Tigard Chamber website www.tigardchamber.org and Facebook and Twitter feeds tigardchamber for those announcements.
This event is the chance for Tigard residents to recognize, celebrate and say thank you to the people who work so hard all year long to enhance the community that we live and do business in and truly make Tigard “A Place to Call Home.” The chamber coordinates and hosts the event, but is really a celebration of the Tigard business and volunteer community and helps our graduating seniors with the next step in their education/career choice.
General information on award criteria and categories can be found here.
Do you know someone who has made an impact to the community in a volunteer role or as a volunteer over a lengthy period of time, or do you know a youth that has impacted the Tigard community? If so, please nominate when nominations open.
