Cedar Rapids is accepting nominations for their Five Seasons Citizenship Awards.

The program, sponsored by the University of Iowa Community Credit Union, runs through May 1. The city council will choose five outstanding residents based on several criteria, including support for the community, strong citizenship, and the development of projects or initiatives that help Cedar Rapids residents.

“As Mayor, I get to meet and hear stories about many citizens doing amazing work in our community,” said Cedar Rapids Mayor Ron Corbett. “The Five Seasons Citizenship Award is our opportunity to recognize and thank five outstanding residents for their commitment to making Cedar Rapids a better place for everyone.”

Winners will be recognized at Resident Appreciation Day, in the downtown Farmers Market on June 6. Each winner will receive a $1000 donation to the charity of their choice.

The nomination form is online at CityofCR.com. Entries are due by May 1.
