Jessie Ferguson Award

For more than 60 years, Vernon Winter Carnival has celebrated all that is winter in the North Okanagan. At its heart, Carnival is all about celebrating community: the uniqueness, the people, and traditions in Vernon.

That is why, this year we are asking the community to nominate a person or organization who embodies the spirit of Vernon Winter Carnival for the Jessie Ferguson award.

This award has traditionally been handed out by the VWC board of directors to dedicated volunteers who have been directly involved with Carnival, but this year we have decided to open it up to the community.

The criteria:
Long time dedication to Vernon Winter Carnival

Individual or Group

Has supported Carnival through events, and/or volunteerism

Deadline for nominations is Sunday Jan 24, 2021.
Recipient will be announced during Vernon Winter Carnival Feb 5-14, 2021.

In 800 words or less tell us why you are nominating this individual or group. How have they shown years of dedication to Carnival through support of events and/or volunteerism?
