      The BC Achievement Foundation is accepting nominations for its annual Community Award until January 31.

      The prize celebrates the "spirit, imagination, dedication, and outstanding contributions of British Columbians to their communities".

      Those eligible are British Columbians who have raised the quality of their area, whether that be in arts and culture, healthcare, multiculturalism, the media, business, or other fields.

      A selection committee of independent community leaders reviews the nominations and selects recipients. Then, in March, winners are announced and attend a formal ceremony at Government House in Victoria with the Lieutenant Governor.

      More info and nomination forms are here. Nominees can't hold elected office and you can't nominate yourself.

      The BC Achievement Foundation also gives out the Fulmer First Nations Art award, the Indigenous Business Award, and the Carl Wosk Award of Applied Art + Design.
