Mayors Awards for Excellence*Please note, the deadline for nominations has been extended a week to September 27!

Each year, Golden’s Mayor Marjorie Sloan hosts a free event open to the public to recognize and celebrate members of the Golden community. Those recognized have contributed greatly to making Golden the community it is today.

The Mayor is now seeking nominations for Goldenites who, through their extraordinary efforts, exhibit commitment to the City of Golden and/or Mines. There are two award categories — the first for a person or group who has contributed to the community at large. The second is the Gold Mine Award, which is specific to the efforts of a person or group who worked toward the betterment of the Colorado School of Mines and the Golden community.

Completed nominations are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, September 27.
