The Henry Johnson Award will be given to a deserving resident with meaningful contributions to the community in the areas of art and history, social justice, education, or volunteerism.

This year is the sixth year that the awards will be presented for Community Service.  Organizers are asking for nominations.  If you know someone who is a leader in the community and they have made positive, meaningful contributions to the community, please submit a nomination.  Nominations for the Henry Johnson Award must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 6.

You cannot nominate yourself, and you cannot be nominated by a member of the Award Committee.  You may be nominated by family members, friends, neighbors, employees, and colleagues or coworkers.

Every nomination will receive a review by the Henry Johnson Award Committee. The committee is made up of members of the City’s Cultural Heritage and Tourism Partnership and the Henry Johnson Day Working Group.  All committee members work on a strict volunteer basis.

The winner will be selected based on the merits of his nomination.  Committee members will take the time to consider the impact of the work as described by the nominator, and the length of service to the community.

The Awards Ceremony will be held sometime in the fall, but the winner will be notified either by email or by phone before the start of the Awards Ceremony.

If you have any questions, you can call Dennis Gaffney or visit Albanyny.gov
