Most people appreciate a little recognition for their contributions, but unfortunately we can all be somewhat negligent in giving it. Others, especially the young people in our community, don't consider what they do to be deserving of recognition. Yet, a little recognition goes a long way to reinforce the importance of contributing to our community. As Halton Hills's community newspaper, we are proud to be able to offer the 2006 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards so we can recognize the outstanding efforts and achievements of young people in our community-- right here on these pages. Please help us by nominating a young person, aged 6-17, who is involved in community service; has performed acts of heroism; is contributing to the community while living with limitations; or is a good kid who shows a commitment to make life better for others, possibly doing things not expected of someone their age. Co-ordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association and supported financially by Tembec Inc. and TD Canada Trust, this program recognizes all young people nominated. Each nominee receives a certificate of recognition from their community newspaper. Up to 12 nominees and one group from across the province are then chosen as the final recipients to receive 2006 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards, during a special ceremony in March 2007. Nominations will be accepted until Nov. 30. Further information about the awards program is available online by visiting www.ocna.org and then clicking on the Awards link, or by calling the OCNA at 905-639-8720, ext. 235. Nomination forms are available at the reception desk of The Independent & Free Press. Nominate a young person today; they deserve to get a little recognition from our community. It's up to us.
