Distinguished Citizen Service Award

Many of us are fortunate enough to know someone who causes us to think, “where do they find the time?”

The one with the full-time job, three kids who play soccer, seems to be on every committee and you know has spent years on the board of an organization that works to improve the community.

Think they should get an award?

Well, Sylvania Township agrees!

There’s a deadline of July 29 for the nomination of residents to be considered for the Sylvania Township “Distinguished Citizen Service Award.”

The award is meant to recognize a resident of just that sort. A resident of the Sylvania community whose voluntary efforts have improved the community but have largely been undertaken quietly.

The award will recognize those who have made, “a significant contribution to the Sylvania community and/or Northwest Ohio.  The purpose of the award program is to shine a light on the high-impact volunteers who have given of themselves for the betterment of the community and their fellow citizens.”

The program specifically excludes elected officials from consideration or anyone who may have already been honored by the naming of a street, park, or other public space for them.

Anyone from Sylvania Township or the City of Sylvania who would like to nominate someone to be considered for the honor should direct the nomination to Oliver Turner, administrator of Sylvania Township.

Turner can be reached via email at, or by mailing or dropping off a nomination at the Sylvania Township Administration Building, 4927 N. Holland-Sylvania Rd. 43560.
