Community Awards

2020 Community Recognition Awards

Annually, the OCDSB recognizes the valuable contributions of our community members, parents, and businesses through the OCDSB Community Recognition Awards. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our community and how our appreciation for the significant and valued work that our volunteers do in our schools for our students.  This year, due to COVID-19, we will not be hosting our annual 
 Volunteer Appreciation Reception and Community Recognition Awards Ceremony.  However, we will still be celebrating our award recipients by letter, website and social media stories.   


There are 6 different award categories including, Chair’s Award, Community Award, Community Partnership Award, Excellence in Equity Community Award, Distinguished School Council Service Award and Volunteer of the Year Award.

Nominations are now closed for all categories except the Community Award and the Excellence in Equity Community Award.  If you know someone who is deserving of recognition in either of these categories, we would love to hear from you. Please submit your nomination by Wednesday, May 20th, 2020.
