Call for Nominations for 2012 Lydia Maria Childs Award


The Wayland Public Ceremonies Committee has traditionally brought to the Town’s Annual Meeting, under Article 1, the names of citizens and/or volunteer organizations to be recognized for their contributions to the Town’s governance, to our community’s quality of life, or to serving important needs among our townspeople. 

In 2009 this honor was named the Lydia Maria Child for outstanding citizenship.  Maria was a national heroine for abolition, equality and human rights who resided in Wayland in the mid nineteenth century.  

In response to citizen request, any resident may submit nominations for this award.  The candidate nominated may be a resident or local group, an organization or an employee of the town. 

The Public Ceremonies Committee invites all Wayland residents to offer nominations for this honor.  Each candidate is given serious deliberation.  For consideration this year a nomination must be received by March 1, 2012.  Prior nominations are carried forward and need not be resubmitted for reconsideration. 

Please send the name of your nominee and your reason for nominating  this candidate along with your contact information to:
