The nomination deadline for Lincoln's first Luminary Award is Monday, October 31. The award, which will recognize an individual for his or her impact on our community, will be presented Sunday, December 18 at Tower Square, 13th and "P" streets (original date was December 21). The award was announced by Mayor Chris Beutler at his annual State of the City address, and the awards program is being coordinated by Leadership Lincoln. More information and a nomination form are available at leadershiplincoln.org or by calling 402-441-4661.
Beutler said it is important to honor Lincoln residents who quietly do good work on a daily basis. He said the award will honor a person who "has displayed consistent and intentional actions that demonstrate Lincoln's values and has gone above and beyond in making an impact on Lincoln and its citizens."
