2016 Citizen Recognition Award

Do you know someone who works to promote the spiritual well-being of the people of Missouri, provides leadership in the area of public policy, participates in the democratic process of government or coordinates diocesan programs and statewide projects to better the common good? If so, nominate them for the Missouri Catholic Conference’s (MCC) Citizen Recognition Award.

The Missouri Catholic Conference will give the Citizen Recognition Award to one individual from each of the four dioceses in Missouri at its Annual Assembly on Oct. 8, 2016. The Bishops of Missouri will present the awards in the House Chamber of the Missouri State Capitol.

This is an opportunity to recognize someone in your parish who goes above and beyond to promote scriptural values and services that reflect respect for the dignity of human life. This person might take an active role in legislation; advocate for participation in, or improvement of, existing government services; initiate parish or community action; or respond to the MCC’s calls to action.

Nominees will be presented before a selection committee made up of representatives of the MCC Public Policy Committee and MCC staff. The MCC will not accept anonymous submissions. However, the MCC will honor a request if the nominator wants to remain anonymous to the award recipient.

If you know someone that deserves this award, please nominate them. To nominate someone online, fill in the form below. Or, call (573) 635-7239 for an award recommendation form. The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. July 29, 2016.

Citizen Recognition Award recipients will announced in a press release in August, and will be presented with the award at the MCC Annual Assembly on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016, at the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City.
