Nominations are wanted for the Lieutenant Governor’s Community Spirit Award, a program that celebrates diverse and vibrant communities in the province.

The annual award profiles achievements and increases visibility in communities through a formal recognition program.

“Across Nova Scotia, people are working together to make their towns and cities happy, healthy and dynamic places to live,” said Lt.-Gov. J.J. Grant. “The Community Spirit Award is a meaningful way to recognize these collective efforts and to celebrate the unique character of each community.”

The department of Communities, Culture and Heritage manages the award program that allows for up to four recipients each year. A selection committee reviews and selects the recipients that best fit the award’s criteria. 

“The diverse nature of our province is one of its greatest strengths,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Tony Ince. “By sharing and recognizing community successes, we develop a deeper appreciation of all communities that make up the intricate fabric of Nova Scotia.”

Communities selected for the award will be honoured at a community celebration in the spring and summer. Lt.-Gov. Grant will attend and present a handcrafted award that stays in the community. 

The recipients for 2013 were Wallace, Cumberland Co., Ballantynes Cove/Cape George, Antigonish Co. and Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation, Antigonish Co.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, March 31. For award application and information visit
