Submit a Nomination for the Calendar
This calendar pays tribute to members of the Black Community who have distinguished themselves in their field of work/play. Honouring these individuals is a way to pay them homage and to present them as role models for the youth in the community, but also to emphasize their contributions to Quebec society at large. All nominations must be submitted by a third party.
In addition to the 20 individuals chosen by an advisory committee, the public may nominate candidates believed to carry on their legacies as leaders of tomorrow. Among the nominations received, 12 will be chosen (within four categories) to accompany the individuals honoured by the Round Table in the calendar photographs.
HOW TO SUBMIT A CANDIDATE:
- Submissions must be presented by someone other than the candidate.
- The registration form must be filled out by December 17, 2010. The form is available online at: www.montrealblackhistorymonth.com
- Applications received after this date will not be accepted.
