- Fairfax Federation Seeks Nominations for Fairfax County 2021 Citizen of the Year
- The Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations is soliciting nominations for its 2021 Fairfax County Citizen of the Year.
Each year, a selection committee of county-wide organizations meets to
review nominations for the Federation's "Citizen of the Year" and merit
awards. The winners are honored at our annual banquet, planned for September 2022
- Both the Citizen of the Year Award and the Citation of
Merit recognize and honor those citizens whose voluntary contributions
of time and talent resulted in major accomplishments that have enhanced
the quality of life for citizens of Fairfax County.
- Nominees must be current residents of Fairfax County.
- Elected officials and full-time county or commonwealth
employees are ineligible for consideration if their contributions are
related to their full-time positions.
- The Citizen of the Year is recognized for voluntary acts that are not related to employment.
- Contributions and accomplishments must have countywide rather than local significance.
- The nominee's achievements can be either:
- General, such as multi-year community service with one or more
organizations or activities with cumulative impact over the years of
current importance or with positive implications for the future, or
- Specific, including intense efforts as the major promoter of a single program or project completed in a finite period of time.
- Persons whose contributions of time and talent resulted in
major accomplishments that have enhanced the quality of life for
citizens of Fairfax County, who do not meet the published eligibility
standards for the Citizen of the Year consideration, may still be
honored by the Federation. Please submit information about these
nominees on the nomination form, indicating that this is an alternative
- Nominations will be accepted from 15 January — 15 March 2022. The nomination form is available online from the
Federation's website, http://www.fcfca.org/coy1.htm.
- The Federation, established in 1940, is the countywide voice
for homeowner, civic, and community associations. An all-volunteer
organization, the Federation works on issues that impact Fairfax County
residents, including education, transportation, environment, human
services, land use, county budget, and county, state and federal
