Nominations for the City of Round Rock’s 2020 Local Legend Awards are being accepted through May 29.
The Local Legend Award program was established in 1990 to recognize individuals, families, businesses, groups, publications, and organizations that have had a positive and lasting impact on the culture, development, and history of Round Rock. Anyone can nominate an individual or group for the award.
Local Legends are selected by the Historic Preservation Commission. The Commission is assisted by a volunteer selection committee, which will review and recommend nominations. The Legends receive a certificate and are honored by the City Council.
Local Legends will be 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; and/or achievements that have brought honor and distinction to the City of Round Rock. Previous Local Legends are listed on the Local Legends archive page. The 2019 Local Legends were Faye Johnson, the Sauls Family, and the Tonkawa Indians.
If you would like to nominate someone to be honored as a Local Legend, nomination forms are available online at www.roundrocktexas.gov/locallegend. Nominations are accepted year-round but must be received by May 29 to be considered for the 2020 awards.
Nomination forms may be sent via email to email@example.com or by postal mail to:
