SALUTE TO EXCELLENCE PROGRAM CITATION AND PERFORMANCE AWARDS

SALUTE TO EXCELLENCE PROGRAM CITATION AND PERFORMANCE AWARDS

The Salute to Excellence Program provides the opportunity for the City of Edmonton to demonstrate its collective pride in the exemplary achievements and inspiring leadership of its citizens in the categories of Arts & Culture, Sport, and Community Service. The Citation Awards honour individuals or groups who have given more than 5 years of distinguished services as volunteers and have been inspirational leaders in sport, arts and culture, and community service within the City of Edmonton. The Performance Awards honour individuals, groups, organizations, or teams who have gained outstanding recognition at the national or international level in sport, or arts and culture. For a Sport Performance Award, nominees must have won a gold medal (open event) at a national event or a gold, silver, or bronze medal ( open event) at an international event.
