A selection committee representing all regions of the constituency will review the nominees and create a shortlist, which will be posted on Mungall’s website.

An online vote between September 10 and 21 will then determine the final four.

“I want everyone to have the opportunity to recognize their friends and neighbours who are doing amazing work to make our communities great,” Mungall said in a news release.

A number of medals have already been presented to West Kootenay residents through the offices of MPs Alex Atamanenko and David Wilks. Others will be chosen through the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.

Overall, 60,000 Canadians are expected to receive the award marking the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign.
