Call for Nominations 2014 Lydia Maria Child Award

lmchildawardThe Wayland Public Ceremonies Committee traditionally brings to the Wayland Annual Town Meeting the announcement of a citizen and/or a volunteer organization to be recognized for their contributions to the Town’s governance, to our community’s quality of life, or to serving the important needs of our townspeople.  In 2009, this honor was named the Lydia Maria Child Award for outstanding citizenship. Lydia Maria Child was a national heroine for abolition, equality and human rights, who resided in Wayland in the mid-nineteenth century.  In response to citizen requests, any resident may submit nominations for this award. The candidate nominated may be a resident or a 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, nominations must be received by March 15, 2014. 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:
