Nominations are being accepted for Chilton’s 2020 Distinguished Citizen of the Year.

The Chilton Chamber of Commerce will honor the recipient at the Chilton Eagles Club on Wednesday, March 31. A social will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. with the award presentation and program to follow at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 per person and can be picked up at Vern’s Cheese, BMO Harris Bank, or The State Bank.

Nominations should be sent to the Chilton Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 122, Chilton, WI 53014. There is a form that needs to be filled out and submitted. Forms can be found on the website, under the Citizen of the Year tab, or at to request a form to be emailed. The form is very specific in asking the nominee’s accomplishments. Nominations must be typed or written. The deadline is Friday, Feb. 12.

Resumes submitted in prior years must be resubmitted on the new form. The achievements of the individual being nominated must have benefited the citizens of the Chilton area, should focus on volunteer-related items rather than be job related, and the nominee must live or work in the Chilton area.

The winner will be selected by a committee of chamber members from submitted resumes prior to the March 3 monthly chamber meeting at which time the Chamber board will hear the recommendation from the committee.

Questions can be directed to Tammy Pethan, Chamber secretary, at 418-1650.
