The Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award

 

The Lieutenant Governor's Community Spirit Award celebrates the power, strength and diversity of vibrant communities across Nova Scotia. It profiles their achievements and increases their visibility through a formal recognition program. 

Up to four Nova Scotian communities are honoured each year. Recipients are chosen by a selection committee based on community applications that best fit the award’s criteria. Communities selected for the award promote citizen engagement, civic pride and a positive outlook on the future.

Successful communities are honoured through celebration and recognition. The Lieutenant Governor attends a community celebration, presents a hand-crafted award and unveils a sign to display in the community. There is province-wide public recognition through the media.

The deadline for Applications for The Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award has been extended until Friday July 30th.
