Criteria & Honoring Process
Selection Criteria
Mayor Barnett’s Community First Awards are selected and presented on a quarterly basis by a committee appointed by the mayor. Each quarter, this committee will review nominations and select two recipients from the award categories who have performed distinguished and extraordinary acts of volunteerism or community service. The committee reserves the right to nominate, select and decline recipients of their choosing.

If you have questions, please contact the office of Mayor Bryan K. Barnett at 248.656.4664.

Honoring Process
Recipients will be honored quarterly by the mayor, city employees and community members during an appreciation ceremony. Each recipient will receive a framed photograph that will be displayed at City Hall for one year and then given to the award recipient.

Individual / Family Awards

Individuals and families will receive gift certificates from many local establishments, gift baskets and an annual park pass from the City of Rochester Hills.

Business / Organization Awards
Local businesses and community organizations will be given a time slot on Rochester Hills television channels 99/20/10 in order to promote the community service project they are involved in. In addition, they will receive a Community First award certificate to be displayed in their place of business or organization.

If you would like to nominate an individual or group for committee consideration, please complete the online or PDF version of the nomination form.
