Nominations for Distinguished Citizen Service Award

A deadline of June 30 has been set for the nomination of residents to be considered for the Sylvania Township “Distinguished Citizen Service Award.”

The award is meant to recognize residents 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 this 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.”

John Crandall, chairman of the Sylvania Township trustees, said the area is fortunate to have many residents who quietly work to maintain and improve the quality of life in the area.

He noted that some in public life are well recognized for their efforts, but that he has known many who either individually or through a community organization have quietly worked to better the community.

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.

He 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.
