Nominations are under way for the annual Order of the Cayman Islands awards and honours, which will be presented on National Heroes Day in January.
Invited by the National Honours and Awards Committee, any member of the public may make a nomination for a resident of the Cayman Islands, living or deceased, for one of three sets of awards. Nominations close at 5pm on Wednesday, 31 October.
Cayman Islands Premier McKeeva Bush said: “We have long maintained that the greatest asset in the Cayman Islands is our people. So what better way is there to celebrate our people than by honouring the most deserving in the community?”
Outlining the awards’ nomination process, Committee Secretary Ms Patricia Ulett said nominations are being called for:
The Medal of Honour, under three categories: commander, officer and member;
The Medal of Merit, under two categories: gold and silver; and
The Long Service Award.
Criteria, nomination forms and guidelines will be available online or as printed copies at the Government Administration Building main lobby and all district public libraries, she said.
