Community Heroes Challenge


March 30 - April 26, 2020  

The Municipality of Shelburne wants to show appreciation and highlight the positive things people are doing and support local businesses during this challenging time. We understand the importance of social support and being a part of bringing the community together. To do this we are launching the Community Heroes initiative.

If there is an individual, family or group that you consider a ‘hero’ all you have to do is nominate them and their name will be entered into a draw for a gift certificate from a local business. Prizes for each category will be done on a weekly basis and winners will be announced. We hope this initiative will help lift our community spirit even higher.

How to submit a nomination -

Provide us with three pieces of information:

- Name of individual, family or group
- Category
- Reason for nomination

You can nominate in one of the following ways:

- In the comments section of the original Facebook post @municipalityofshelburne
- Private Facebook message,
- Email:
- Phone: 902-875-7051

What is a hero?

There is no one definition of what makes someone a Hero, but most tend to be unsung individuals who are quietly doing amazing work for the improvement of their communities and neighbors. Everyone knows someone who is taking initiatives and action; helping the community and selflessly working to improve our world during these unprecedented and uncertain times. We recognize that these people are the true heroes of our communities and wish to acknowledge their actions through weekly draws for local prizes.
