Calgary Awards

Calgary Awards

In 1994, The City of Calgary established the Calgary Awards to celebrate and recognize outstanding achievements and contributions made by Calgarians. Each year, individuals, corporations, community groups, schools and organizations are nominated in five major award categories, for a total of 16 awards.

The City of Calgary encourages all Calgarians to look to their neighbours, colleagues, community leaders and local organizations or businesses for those who could qualify as recipients of the Calgary Awards.
