The Town of Dannemora Good Neighbor Award


The Dannemora Town Board is pleased to introduce the “Good Neighbor Award”. 


Designed to recognize a Town Resident for improving our community by being a Good Neighbor, going out of their way to exhibit selfless contributions and performing considerate deeds.  (Examples include planting a community garden, saving a lost pet, being there for a neighbor in need, taking on a community-improving project like highway clean-up, organizing and participating fundraisers for someone in need, creating/participating in neighborhood watch, etc.) 


Awarded quarterly by the Town Board, the Good Neighbor Award consists of a Recognition Certificate and gift certificate from a local business. A committee consisting of at least three non-eligible people will select the quarterly winner from all nominations received.  Nominees not selected will stay in the nominee pool for one year.  Individuals may only be selected once in a 12-month period, although they may be nominated for additional actions every quarter. The selection committee will present the winner to the Town Board at the end of each quarter, to be recognized at the following month’s board meeting. 


Criteria for nomination:  

  • The nominee and nominator must both be residents of the Town of Dannemora.   

  • The Action they are nominated for must occur within Town Limits and be a commitment of personal time and/or resources. 

  • The nominees must not have received monetary compensation for their act, and it cannot be in the performance of their normal work. (i.e. – a volunteer fireman cannot receive an award for responding to an accident) unless it is an obvious case of “above and beyond”. 

  • Town employees and elected officials are ineligible. 

  • No self-nominations.
