Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -Do you know someone who deserves a public pat on the back for a job well done?

Rochester Mayor Kim Norton is now seeking nominations for the Mayor’s Medal of Honor awards.

They recognize “residents who have gone above and beyond to serve the community.”

The awards include fourteen categories. Nominations can be made online or through a paper form and are due October 31. Selected recipients will be honored at a virtual gathering in December. 

This year will be the 37th year of the Mayor’s Medal of Honor.

To submit a nomination, a nominator must complete a very brief form, which includes providing up to 300 words on why the individual deserves the award. More information is available on the City website or by contacting Michon Rogers in the Mayor’s Office at 507-328-2700. 

Mayor Kim Norton says, “The Mayor’s Medal of Honor is a longstanding opportunity to recognize the outstanding contributions of our community members. Rochester is fortunate to have residents who are strongly committed to being engaged and involved. I encourage all members of our community to consider submitting a nomination for someone you know who deserves this recognition.”
