Do you know a local volunteer who deserves recognition for their outstanding contributions to life in Tacoma? If you do, nominations for the City of Tacoma’s 2021 City of Destiny Awards, which have been honoring local volunteers for the past 35 years, are open through Feb. 8.

Nominations for the City of Destiny Awards must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Feb. 8 to be considered by the selection panel. Nominations can be filled out online. Questions or requests for hard copy nomination forms can be directed to or call (253) 573-2523.

Since its inception, more than 200 individuals and groups have received recognition for their contributions to life in Tacoma through these awards. Continued program enhancements made by the City Events and Recognitions Committee (CERC) have allowed for more volunteers who give willingly their time and talents to be eligible for a nomination.
