They’re all community leaders – and they’re all around us.

If you know one, we need you to let us know who they are.

The deadline for the Surrey/North Delta Leader’s 9th Annual Community Leader Awards is fast-approaching and we want to honour the people in Surrey and Delta who deserve some recognition for their tireless efforts in bettering their communities.

Nominations will be considered in categories including mentor, teacher, youth, volunteer, coach, community supporter, emergency services organization and courage. Or, if we’ve missed a category, feel free to submit your own.

Nomination submissions should be about 250 words and include information such as specific examples of the work and contributions made and how long they’ve been in the community.

Send or drop off submissions to: #200 - 5450 152 St., Surrey, B.C. V3S 5J9, or enter online at www.surreyleader.com (click on the yellow CLA button near top of page).

The deadline is Friday, April 15.
