Each year, the WSDA requests nominations for the Citizen of the Year Award
from its members, looking for exemplary service to the community. The work should be based on civic activities not affiliated with organized dentistry, and can include any number of activities and organizations such as service organizations, schools, non-salaried government positions or church sponsored community activities. Volunteer work does not have to be dental related. The award is not intended for an individual who provides limited uncompensated services or provides such services to an underserved population in the course of business for which they are compensated. SUBMIT A NOMINATION
The award is presented at the Citizen of the Year banquet held during the annual House of Delegates meeting. In 2015, the House will convene in September in Spokane.
Last year’s winners were Drs. Amy Winston and Bart Johnson, recognized for their years of work providing care to some of dentistry’s most challenging patients. Dentists and their staff are now invited to nominate a WSDA member dentist for the 2015 award. The deadline for nominations is June 5. Forms and award guidelines are available from component society secretaries and executive directors, or the WSDA office.
All nominations will be reviewed by a task force of the WSDA. Nominations may be made by an individual member of the WSDA or a component dental society, or a staff member of a WSDA member dentist. Previous nominations are kept on file for three years and may be updated and resubmitted.
