About the Local Legend Awards
The Local Legend Award recognizes individuals, families, businesses, groups, publications, or organizations that have had a positive and lasting impact on the culture, development, and history of Round Rock. Each year’s Legends receive a certificate and are honored by the City Council.
Local Legends are selected based on the following criteria:
- Importance to the City’s founding or growth
- Association with an historic place or event
- Impact of service to the community’s history, development or culture
- Achievements that have brought honor and distinction to the City of Round Rock
Local Legends are selected by a volunteer committee appointed by the HPC. The Committee is responsible for outreach to encourage nominations, reviewing nominations to select the Local Legends, and assisting with the award presentation to the City Council.
