Nominations open for people’s gongs
(CNS): The public is being invited to submit nominations or the 2013 Order of the Cayman Islands awards and honours, which will be presented on National Heroes Day in January. Names put forward for the awards, which were created by the premier, will be considered by the National Honours and Awards Committee and anyone can make a nomination for a resident of the Cayman Islands, alive or dead, for one of three sets of awards. McKeeva Bush stated that the awards are part of his nation-building initiative and were about giving “credit where it is due for the contributions of our people.” He said that his office continues to promote such recognition.
“We have long maintained that the greatest asset in the Cayman Islands is our people,” said McKeeva Bush as he announced the nominations. “So what better way is there to celebrate our people than by honouring the most deserving in the community?
“Living among us are everyday heroes who deserve recognition for their work and contributions to the development, success and general well-being of our people and our Islands. Their selfless actions positively impact the lives of many others besides the immediate beneficiaries and such action is definitely worthy of emulation and appreciation,” he added.
Nominations close at 5pm on Wednesday, 31 October, and the committee secretary Patricia Ulett said nominations were being called for in the following medal categories:
- 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 for printing at uit.gov.ky/pls/portal/url/page/mtehome or as printed copies at the Government Administration Building main lobby and all district public libraries.
Completed forms should be submitted to Secretary, National Honours and Awards Committee, PO Box 106, Ministry of Finance, Tourism & Development, Grand Cayman KY1-9000. If selected, candidates will be sent a letter asking them whether they are willing to accept the honour, she added.
