Let's celebrate business!

First Citizen Award

Help us recognize exemplary leaders who positively impact our community!

Since 1939, the annual First Citizen Award is presented to a Clark County resident who models the attributes of good citizenship through leadership, action, civic pride, and cultivates inclusive civic engagement practices.

These are individuals who, through their business, volunteering, and philanthropic efforts, improve the lives of those in the community by serving first.  

Do you know an outstanding Clark County resident who deserves this honor? Nominate HERE!
