The village has established an Outstanding Citizen Award Program that is intended to provide the community with an opportunity to publicly acknowledge the contribution made by certain individuals for the betterment of the Village of Schaumburg.
The village believes it is important to recognize Schaumburg community members for extraordinary accomplishments, heroic and courageous efforts, and perseverance despite incredible odds. To honor these outstanding efforts, the village has developed a community citizen recognition program. This procedure is administered exclusively through the Village Manager's Office. Nominations are based on the following criteria:
The individual may be nominated by anyone. There are no restrictions on who can nominate the individual.
A nomination form is provided by the village to serve as a cover and guideline for the submission of nominations. The nomination must include a narrative statement by the nominator, either on the form or attached to it, specifically explaining why the nominated individual is worthy of receiving the award. The nomination must also include adequate supporting documents to substantiate the efforts and conditions under which they occurred. These may include official reports, narratives, news articles, and information on any other awards or recognition for the incident.
The total nomination submission may not exceed 8, 8-1/2” x 11" pages of material.
All nominations should be typewritten.
Nominations may be made any time. There is no deadline for submittals. If in the judgment of the village, the nomination is incomplete, not adequately substantiated, or illegible, it will be returned to the nominator for further information and re-submission.
