August 2--Each year, The Citizen of the Year Committee, made up of all past “Citizen of the Year” and “Man of the Year” recipients, solicits nominations for Vidalia’s “Man of the Year”.  The deadline for nominations is August 31st, 2018.

The seven categories that make up the criteria and basis for selecting the “Man of the Year” are Spiritual, Charitable, Cultural / Educational, Civic, Public Affairs, Economic Affairs and General.  

If you feel passionate about an individual's contribution to our area, please take a moment to complete a nomination form and summit it to the nominations committee.  

Nominations for Man of the Year may be submitted by sending a nomination form to The Man of the Year Nominations Committee, 313 Maple Drive, Vidalia, GA 30474.  Or, contact a member of the nominations committee:  Steve Brown 912-293-1179; Mike Calhoun 912-537-3017; Gary Campbell 912-293-5757; Dennis Ingley 912-293-3325; or Howard Holman 912-293-2505.   Nominations must be received by August 31st, 2018.  

A few things to remember:

  • The nominees should demonstrate significant leadership and community service to the Vidalia area;
  • To be considered eligible, the nominee should be a local resident of the Vidalia area for a period of at least five years;
  • The recipient shall be determined on the basis of services and benefits over and beyond excellence in one’s own profession or business; and
  • The recipient should be one who has a “track record” for service, rather than a single or brief act of merit.

A community wide Citizen of the Year Banquet will be held in February of 2019 to announce Vidalia’s 2018 “Man of the Year” and “Lady of the Year”.
