The Daily News Citizen of the Year

For the first time ever, The Daily News is accepting public nominations for its annual Citizen of the Year award.


Naming the Citizen is a tradition spanning more than 30 years and being named Citizen of the Year is among the highest honors a Galveston County resident can receive.


The winner will be added to long list of distinguished past honorees, a who’s who of movers and shakers whose influence has shaped life in Galveston County.

The nomination period closes on Jan. 24 at 5:00 p.m. No nominations will be accepted after Jan. 24.


From those nominations, The Daily News will select 20 finalists, and from those, one Citizen of the Year. The finalists will be honored, and the Citizen of the Year revealed during a special event on April 2.


All 20 finalists will be featured in a glossy magazine to be published April 5, the Sunday after the event, and in The Daily News.
