Again this year, Wednesday Journal is asking readers for their nominations for our annual Villager of the Year award. Previously this selection process was as secret as picking the pope. But we asked for your ideas last year and the world didn't end, so we have decided to ask again.
Time is short, so send your thoughts today. The deadline for nominations is this Friday, Dec. 23 at 5 p.m.
Click here to nominate someone.
Here are the details:
- There will be both a River Forest and an Oak Park Villager of the Year. There will also be runner-ups representing each village.
- We are looking for the individual – OK, some times we choose a small group – who has had the greatest impact on the community in the past year. It doesn't have to have been a positive impact, though typically it is just that.
- Journal editors make the final choices.
- Villager of the Year will be announced in print on Wednesday, Jan. 4. The intensely curious will find the announcement at OakPark.com at 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 3
Thanks for joining in the nominating process.
