The Leadership Award

Please take the time to nominate someone you feel deserves to be recognized for his or her contribution to our community. We all know of someone who gives of him or herself, always working to make Perham a better place to live and work. These nominees should be individuals who have done an especially good job in leading the community on a project or an important issue. Frequently, their involvement is one-on-one, helping folks on a daily basis. They also tend to be involved in organizations that help people or help their community, and they are highly generous with their time and talents.

The Hall of Fame Award

This award is given to someone who deserves to be recognized for his or her work for the community. This person would be considered an integral part of the community and highly involved in making Perham a better community. These nominees might have been in business or a service sector in the community, working or retired, male or female, living or deceased or even former residents. This award goes to an individual who has been highly involved in the community over time.

"The awards are our way of showing these individuals how much the Perham community appreciates them and the work they do," Perham Chamber executive director Dan Schroeder said.
