The Harold M. Haynes Citizen Involvement Award celebrates those who do work that provides benefits such as: 

  • fostering positive leadership;

  • bringing clarity to complex Washington County issues;

  • informing or shaping decisions through community input, especially through substantial efforts that have a positive impact;

  • inclusive community engagement that broadens and diversifies participation, especially with younger populations and historically under-represented communities;

  • building trust, transparency and responsiveness in government.

Nominations are due by Friday, March 1.
