Outstanding Citizenship Award
Throughout our Town’s history, volunteers have donated countless hours to improve the quality of life in Flower Mound. The success of any community is built upon the efforts of individuals committed to serving their community with the desire to make it a better place to live, work, and play.
The Outstanding Citizenship Award is designed to recognize each year:
- a group
- an individual (adult and youth category)
- an individual for the 'Lifetime Achievement Award' (10+ years of demonstrated cumulative service)
All should demonstrate exemplary service to the community. The Town is fortunate to have a longstanding tradition of hardworking volunteers and this award aims to recognize those who have given unselfishly of themselves in service to others.
