The Mirror wants your nominations for citizen of the month | Rudi Alcott

This winner will be picked from all of the monthly winners and will receive a nice prize package courtesy of The Mirror.

Federal Way is a vast and diverse city. It incorporates a group of people that make it almost 90,000 strong and Washington’s 11th largest city.

The city survives and thrives because of its people. The Mirror wants to recognize these people with the beginning of a “citizen of the month” feature.

Your job is to nominate these people. The only rule is that the nominee must live or work in Federal Way.

Perhaps you know of someone who went out of their way to volunteer, help an individual in need, tutor a classroom, or drive a shut-in to the store or a movie.

Nominations are open to all age groups.

Send an email to editor@federalwaymirror.com or mail nominations to the Federal Way Mirror, 31919 1st Ave. S., Federal Way, WA 98003.

Please include a short reason why your pick deserves to be recognized for the citizen of the month.

Send these to us by the 20th of each month. We will cull through all of the entries received, pick a winner, and do a short story and photo of the winner for publication in the last edition of The Mirror each month.

In March, at our annual Best of Federal Way event that is open to the public, we will announce the winner of the citizen of the year.

This winner will be picked from all of the monthly winners and will receive a nice prize package courtesy of The Mirror.

So, don’t delay. Send in your pick. The first winner will be for November. This submission is due by Nov. 20. Please include your nominee’s contact information.

Thank you for reading the Federal Way Mirror.
