Elgin’s Image Advisory Commission continues to seek 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 Monday, January 23, 2012.
Each year, the Image Advisory Commission recognizes image-enhancing and beautification efforts and has honored such organizations and businesses as Habitat for Humanity’s RESTORE and Gail Borden Public Library. The Commission has also honored many individuals, including Velma Sept, and numerous civic organizations.
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.
