CITIZEN OF THE YEAR AWARD:

Since 1987 the Citizens for Ponce Inlet has selected, honored and acknowledged a resident of the town of Ponce Inlet or a paid employee involved in volunteer work who has made an outstanding contribution to the community and has not previously received this award.  In 2014 the CFPI Board voted that only one person each year will receive this award.

Applications are submitted to the CFPI Board and past Award Recipients in February of each year for judging.  The Annual Award Ceremony Dinner is held in April.  Applications and instructions can be found in our 2021 Winter Online Newsletter.
