Elgin’s Image Advisory Commission is now seeking nominations for its prestigious Image Awards which annually recognizes individuals, businesses or organizations that have had a positive impact on Elgin. The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, January 30, 2009.
Each year, the Image Advisory Commission recognizes image-enhancing and beautification efforts and has honored such organizations and businesses as Kim’s Black Belt Academy, Little Angels and Al’s Café & Creamery.

There are five categories for the annual awards including Individual/Professional, Individual/Volunteer, Projects (such as special events, fundraising projects and neighborhood improvements), and Organizations or Businesses.
In addition to the Image Awards, the Commission also presents a Citizenship award, which is designed to recognize individuals whose outstanding activities and efforts exemplify the meaning of citizenship.
