In the first quarter of each year, the Chamber of Commerce requests nominations for the Citizen of the Year Award. In 2022, the Chamber will be celebrating 43 years of honoring extraordinary citizens in our community.
This prestigious award honors individuals of local prominence whom the Chamber and the community recognize as contributors to the betterment of life in Winchester. There are no specific criteria for the award itself.
The stature of the individuals who have been honored in the past serves as the true benchmark for selection.
To nominate an exemplary citizen, complete this form.
