Hearts of Gold Nominations

Nominate someone for a great community award, the annual Heart of Gold Awards, which recognizes people in our community for the special things they do! A nomination is a fantastic form of recognition to someone who makes a difference in our neighborhoods, schools, organizations and businesses.

We all know everyday heroes who quietly go about making our community a better place for all of us. The annual Special Events Commission's Heart of Gold Awards program is your chance to celebrate these deserving people!

Nominations are easy to do and will not expire for two years, so nominate as many people as you like! The only requirements are that the individual or group nominated lives or works in Arlington Heights and that members of the Village Board or Special Events Commission are not nominated. The Heart of Gold has 11 nomination categories, giving you the opportunity to nominate a great neighbor, teacher, volunteer, a young person, a hero, a business leader, a senior citizen and more!

Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Thursday, October 31. Nominations are closed for the 2020 Hearts of Gold.  Please include as much information as possible regarding your nominee.

Submit an online nomination form that includes descriptions of the 11 award categories. The more information you provide about the nominee, the more helpful.

Also, you can print the nomination form if you prefer to use this method for nominating someone. You can also review the award categories as well as our list of past honorees.

The Heart of Gold banquet will be held on Saturday, February 15 at Rolling Green Country Club. The honoree and a guest receive free reservations. The event is open to anyone who wishes to make a reservation and attend. This event is coordinated the Village’s Special Events Commission.
