About Milford's Citizen Of The Year Initiative

All residents of Milford are invited to submit nominations for the individual(s) who, in their opinion, best demonstrate good citizenship through active volunteerism and community participation to help make Milford the great community that it is to live, work and raise a family.

Presented annually, the award recognizes individuals who have made noteworthy contributions to our community over and above normal employment or occupational duties. 

All nominees must be Milford residents. In choosing the recipient, regard will be given to the nominee’s achievements in the year immediately prior to receiving the award, as well as their past achievements and ongoing contributions to the community. 

A nominee need only be nominated once to be considered. The number of nominations received per nominee will not be the deciding factor in the selection process.

Sponsored by the Arthur L. Keyes Memorial Trust, the award is presented in collaboration with the Town of Milford NH and the Granite Town Festivities Committee. It is our way of honoring the phenomenal spirit of community volunteerism that makes Milford a great hometown!
