At least 15 more Swift Current residents will be receiving the Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Medal.

The City of Swift Current and the province announced at the start of September they've formed a partnership to help shine the light on outstanding individuals.

Nicole Spenst, the events and program manager for the City of Swift Current, said it's a fantastic program to help commemorate the late Queen Elizabeth II's accession to the throne for 70 years.

"But also to give recognition to Swift Current residents who have gone above and beyond in making it the Swift Current we all know and love today," she said. "It's really a chance to recognize those individuals."

The City's community services division will be accepting applications from the public until October 31. 

"Then we will choose 15 out of the application pool at that time to present to the province," she explained.   

Requirements to nominate an individual include they must be a Swift Current resident, made a significant contribution to Canada, Saskatchewan, or locally, and been alive on February 6, 2022.  

"Nominators should highlight which areas their nominee has benefitted the community in, such as arts, health care, education, agriculture, volunteer service, etc.," the City said in a press release.

Nomination forms can be found here and either emailed to communityservices@swiftcurrent.ca or submitted at city hall to the community services division.
