Hardeman Announces Open Nominations for Queen’s Jubilee Medal

WOODSTOCK – Ernie Hardeman, Oxford MPP, announced today that he is asking for nominations of deserving individuals for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.

“The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of outstanding citizens in our community,” said Hardeman. “If you know someone who deserves a medal for their volunteerism, public service, excellence in their field or other contribution to the community I encourage you to nominate them.”

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne. The medals will be awarded based on recommendations received from a number of sources including federal and provincial members of parliament, the Canadian Armed forces and a number of non-government organizations.

To be eligible for this honour, a person must:

Be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada;
Have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada; and
Be alive on February 6th, 2012, the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s accession to the Throne.

Nominations should be submitted in writing by emailing them to ernie.hardeman@pc.ola.org, faxing them to 519-537-3577 or sending them to Ernie Hardeman’s office at 12 Perry St, Woodstock, ON N4S 3C2. Nominations must contain full contact information and a description of why the person is deserving.

Nominations will be reviewed by an advisory panel who will recommend recipients for the medals. Nominations should be submitted by Friday April 27.

“There are many people who make a significant contribution to our communities and I’m pleased to have this opportunity to recognize their efforts and hard work,” said Hardeman.
