Nominations Sought for 2011 Seattle-King County First Citizen Award

Monday, July 12, 2010

Nominations for the 2011 Seattle-King County First Citizen Award will be accepted by the selection committee until August 15. The award, presented annually since 1939, celebrates community leadership, volunteerism and public service.

This year’s recipient, former U.S. Senator Slade Gorton, was honored for his half-century of public service at a civic event in May. A banquet for the 73rdFirst Citizen recipient will be held in the spring of 2011.

Letters of nomination, together with any supporting material, should be sent to First Citizen Selection Committee, c/o SEATTLE KingCounty REALTORS, 12410 SE 32nd St., Suite 100, Bellevue WA 98005 or submitted by email to Val Towler. Nominees should be current or former residents of King County whose leadership, benevolence or inspiration has helped enhance the quality of life for the area’s residents.

The First Citizen Award, believed to be this region’s most senior citation of its kind, has no fund-raising expectation, but instead is designed solely as a not-for-profit celebration of community involvement. Since inception, the recipients have included individuals, couples and families, along with one organization. Their contributions as “First Citizens” have benefited humanitarian organizations, charitable and educational institutions, arts groups and various philanthropic causes that have enriched the community.

The Seattle KingCounty Realtors is a nonprofit professional trade association whose goals include promoting business practices that reflect a strict code of ethics and supporting policies that preserve and expand real property rights and housing affordability. Based in Bellevue, SKCR is one of 1,800 local associations of the National Association of Realtors.
