OCNA’s Junior Citizen competition is now open

Nominate an outstanding individual you know, and help us recognize the incredible determination, imagination, and spirit that make our lives and our communities better. If you know someone who is involved in worthwhile community service, is contributing while living with a limitation, has performed an heroic act, demonstrates individual excellence, or is going above and beyond to help others, then please nominate them!

A committee of newspaper editors, publishers and the program's sponsors will then select up to 12 individual award winners.

Every nominee will receive a certificate of recognition from their local community newspaper, and the final recipients are invited to a special ceremony in Toronto.

The deadline to submit applications is November 30.
