The City of Calgary is inviting Calgarians to recognize fellow citizens for their contributions in making Calgary a better city to live in.
The Calgary Award was first established in 1994 by The City and is given to an individual, group, organization, school, or corporation depending on the criteria for each award. Nominations can be made for five different areas totalling 16 awards:

To nominate someone for a Calgary Award, you need to submit a letter of nomination to The City detailing why the nominee deserves the award, or fill out an online nomination form. The deadline to nominate someone is Wednesday, March 1.
The nominations for the The City of Calgary W.O. Mitchell Book Prize are now closed. The deadline was December 31, 2016.
