Fairfax County Volunteer Citizen of the Year

Nominations can be submitted from 1 December 2020 until 31 January 2021

Whom will you nominate?


The Fairfax County Citizen of the Year Award is sponsored by the Fairfax County Federation of Citizens Associations

Each year, a selection committee of county-wide organizations meets to review nominations for the Federation's "Citizen of the Year" and Citation(s) of Merit.

The winners are honored at a annual banquet. Both the Citizen of the Year Designation and Citation(s) of Merit recognize and honor those citizens whose voluntary contributions of time and talent have resulted in major accomplishments that have enhanced the quality of life for citizens of Fairfax County.


The Nomination form is available online and in RTF format.

The 2020 Nomination period is from 1 December 2020 to 31 January 2021
We thank those who honor their fellow citizens by nominating them for consideration.
